Named after the diamond in the Crown of Queen Elizabeth, this development involved the demolition of an existing aged care facility and replaced with the new construction of ‘Koh-I-Noor Contemporary Aged Care’.
The new facility is two storey’s, specifically designed with 80 aged care and dementia care beds. New amenities include activity and dining areas with intimate domestic kitchens for residents to enjoy. These are complemented with a commercial kitchen, laundry and staff areas. There are views and access to dementia wandering gardens and internal courtyards throughout the building.
The external design reflects the residential nature of the surrounding suburb of Wembley. It sits comfortably within this context, having consideration for the neighbours. Artwork is integral to the architecture, creating a stunning natural entry from Pangbourne Street.
This project received Winner for ‘Residential Aged Care Project of the Year’ at the Eldercare Innovation Awards 2019.
