Winner: UDIA NSW 2020 Awards for Excellence: Aged Care
With a site neighbouring a national park and containing a building of heritage significance Southern Cross Care North Turramurra is designed to maximise the connection of its residents with the bush setting and existing heritage house and chapel on site.
The project is orientated and configured in order to ensure residents are continually provided with a vital connection to the outside world. The glazed common facilities and light wells located in the corridors, to bring daylight into corridors, ensure that the natural circadian rhythms of both residents and staff are continually maintained promoting healthy bodies and minds.
Adding to this the locations of the shared lounges and dining spaces have been positioned to capture the picturesque Australian bush surroundings, invigorating and promoting conversation amongst residents.
Restoration of a heritage house and chapel as part of the building works also encourage residents to move around the site, creating points of interest outside of the care building as well as within.
Our team are ready to bring your vision to life through a collaborative and innovative design process. Get in touch to get started.
