KPA Architects partnered with BADGE Construction for the design and construct of additions and refurbishment works to Manoah Homes, comprising of a new 16 bed wing and common area renovations.
During the design phase, KPA worked closely with BADGE and Monoah Homes to ensure the residents and care home needs were being met, as well as consulting with Alzheimer’s WA. To further enrich the design phase, KPA prepared a virtual reality walk for Monoah Homes and BADGE to experience, to ensure expectations would be achieved. Feedback from BADGE’s Design Manager is as follows “This is the first time that we have used VR in the design phase and it proved to be a very worthwhile tool, and from my perspective really got the client engaged and involved in the design process and enabled some key decisions to be made, which will greater enhance the project experience for Manoah Homes. Feedback to me from the Manoah Homes team was very positive and I just wanted to pass this on. Well done to Sheridan who I understand put the whole VR display together. Keep up the good work KPA. Thanks and regards, Michael and the BADGE team.”
Manoah Homes now has a total capacity of 33 beds, including dedicated indoor and outdoor areas, continuing to cater for the needs for people with dementia.
