The project was one of two aged care facilities commissioned by UnitingCare Australia. Crucial to the design is the research approach that develops a home-like environment aimed to deinstitutionalise care and foster a person-centred care approach.Conceptually the facility breaks into a cluster of small residential facilities. It takes on a 'town' concept with key locations like community areas, chapel and shops that become locations attracting travel in the community.
