- Project Details
- Stewart Architecture has developed a Master Plan for the site including a retirement village and residential care accommodation arranged around a central clubhouse and park. The two storey clubhouse is the focal point of the community and looks north over the park and to the Higgins oval beyond.
The major characteristic of the master plan are buildings set in within an extensive landscape. This landscape includes both large and more intimate spaces for the enjoyment of residents and their guests. The street frontages and internal driveways are also attractively landscaped to ensure a lush garden setting.
The independent living units are provided as both townhouses and apartments to ensure a variety of living options for residents. The inclusion of apartments with parking under allows compact building footprints with landscape spaces maximised.
"The outdoor living spaces are designed to encourage residents to socialise within their community.”
