The Royce is a luxurious development of 145 independent living units and a 126 bed aged care facility, which forms part of the Penrith Panthers Masterplan. The design philosophy behind the development is to allow for ‘Ageing with Choice’.

‘Ageing with Choice’ brings services to the individual within their home, meaning that they can choose to stay in their own home longer, and fostering an environment where people continue to live in a community, retaining their friends and interests. The development has been designed to provide flexibility in the layout of individual apartments, enabling the internal design to change to respond to the needs of the individual, such as altering the layout of the kitchen and bathroom to accommodate a wheelchair.

*Winner: UDIA 2015 Awards for Excellence: NSW Senior’s Aged Care Living

As part of a major upgrade to their service buildings, CASS commissioned us to design a new 63 bed Residential Aged Care Facility. We considered the aspects of the site and ensured we were capturing the best outlooks for each area. The U-shape of its footprint defines a private north-facing courtyard garden for residents, away from the street. The western facade fronts Fifth Avenue as the primary elevation and is well articulated with deep verandas and balconies off all rooms.

The five-stage development also includes a new childcare centre, community hall, administration office and auxiliary services. The materials are simple and contemporary, mixing the bold colour of the red glazed bricks with light rendered walls and perforated anodised aluminium balustrade.

We undertook the complete redevelopment of an existing nursing home for Southern Cross Care to modernise their facility. Focussed on creating spaces for a varied array of residents, the 113-bed Aged Care Facility is designed to create a warm and relaxing environment. Along with private suites, a communal dining area and games room allow residents to come together creating a sense of community.

An ergonomic environment gives residents the freedom to be independent while facilitating staff to work seamlessly throughout the facility. Private suites were created with ensuite and kitchenettes and feature a range of mobility assistance systems. The redevelopment also included a Heritage House and Chapel.

*Commendation: UDIA 2015 Awards for Excellence: NSW Regions & ACT

Gosling Creek Aged Care is a homestead style building designed to feel more like a boutique hotel than an aged care home. The single level building offers residents a premium level of comfort and amenity, while enjoying the beautiful rural setting of the Orange countryside.

To create a community feel for the project, we designed the space around a central meeting point or ‘town centre’ with interconnecting wings and corridors extending from the centre. The site is comprised of smaller private living areas and comprises 120 beds total. The country charm of the site extends into the interior of the building to give residents a comfortable and inviting living experience.

*Commendation: UDIA 2018 Awards for Excellence: Aged Care

The refurbishment of Uniting Annesley involved transforming a motel style building into an aged care home for older people living with a mental illness. New additional rooms, common areas, as well as the augmentation of the existing exterior corridor into the interior of the building, were included in the scope.

The challenge of this refurbishment was in making the existing building fit within the clients’ design guide and care model. With the focus on mental health, the heritage component of the building was renovated to maintain character, whereas the motel component of the site was enhanced with modern features representing a different era and character.

The overall result of this project is one of renewal, delight, colour and warmth. Once a bleak and dated environment, Uniting Annesley has been given a new lease of life to both the existing older buildings as well as for the residents who live there.

We were tasked to extend an existing Residential Aged Care Facility for the Residential Gardens for Spanish Speaking and Frail Aged Limited. The extension was required to hold 22 beds and accessibility was key for our client.

Completed in 2017, the extension included the design of a new entrance and front of house. When designing the extension, we paid particular consideration to the existing space and balancing the new with the old. The key feature is the double ceiling height atrium that provides and spacious, airy and light filled space for residents with accessible ramp access from the lower to the upper floor for the ease of movement.
