Jackson Teece was engaged by Anglican Care to design a new Residential Aged Care facility within their existing aged care complex in a lakeside bush setting of the Hunter Valley.

 

This modern composition responds actively to its natural setting and optimises connection to the water and flora. The design simultaneously draws from and addresses the undulating natural topography by forming a solution for the substantial overland flow path.

This ‘star-shaped’ scheme was formed around a central organisational core with radiating resident wings straddling the topography. The e building provides a diverse array of outlooks, connection to outdoor courtyards that feed off an abundance of natural light throughout the building.

A subtle yet distinguishable palette of earth tones conveys the warmth of comfort that the facility provides – a comfort that feels like home. Functionally, the building includes a basement carpark with lift access to a central foyer, welcoming entry with grand porte cochere, common public spaces such as café, salon, day therapy centre, multi- function room spaces, resident dining and lounge. These areas create a focal point for social interaction between residents, staff, visitors and the wider community. terraces leading off of the public spaces provide extensive opportunities for personal reflection and interaction with the surrounding natural environment.
