The design of the building is of a low scale nestled within its surroundings, blending in with the existing residential context. Face brickwork mixed with considered articulations and landscaping give the building a residential and homely feel welcoming residents, their families, staff and visitors. Wherever possible the interior spaces have views to outdoor landscaping and gardens. These gardens provide places for both quiet contemplation and social interaction, and provide ever changing views, fragrances, textures and bird life.
Extensive verandahs and balconies provide places for the residents to sit and enjoy views to the dog park to the south. The double volume porte – cochere clearly identifies the main entry, whilst the external café overflow area, Allied Health consultancy suites, public art and informal pedestrian link to the dog park help provide an activated street presence that will continue to contribute to the vibrancy of the area.
