Hames Sharley were asked to create a master plan and Stage 1 that conveys Adventist Residential Care as a leader in retirement and aged services and takes advantage of the site assets and location through the firm’s understanding of residential architecture, master planning and urban design.
Architecturally, the design solution focused on opening up internal space to provide residents with a connection to the outside community within the village, the wider neighbourhood and surrounding environment.
Stage 1 of the development met the brief of maximizing views north to the city from as many apartments as possible and the creation of a legible built form with one common entry point that allows seamless integration into the longer term master plan vision.
A communal hub at the base of the building was designed to enhance the lives of the residents, who benefit from the use of an active ground floor and well-designed circulation spaces with access to daylight and ventilation.
