Balnarring Seniors Living
Country and coast take the lead
Nestled in the beautiful surrounds of the Mornington Peninsula, the countryside and coast lead the design of this seniors living project for Arcare. Natural finishes and materials, teamed with soaring ceilings and full height glazing will take full advantage of the aspect and views.
The site is surrounded by significant landscape and vegetation which required protection. The building form took shape around the existing flora, elongating the length of the building to capture northern sunlight and retaining large trees on the west which provide share to the site.
The central courtyard ensures that each room receives natural light and communal areas are located to take advantage of the striking surrounding area.
Throughout the design, consideration was made to neighboring infrastructure permitting an articulated building roof form creating an architectural language synonymous with the local area.
