The project brief called for attractive yet economical accommodation as part of an existing village in Sydney’s north. The scheme includes a new aged care facility as well as 76 independent living units.
Existing accommodation on the site included one and two storey walk-up apartments in the form of cluster housing constructed in the 1980’s and 1990’s. New accommodation reflects the simple forms of the existing housing using a contemporary aesthetic reinterpretation. All new housing is accessible either by lift access or by over/under townhouse design taking advantage of the site slope.
