Seniors Living 3,000m2 Complete 2016

Soft, floating forms inspire laidback living for seniors on the Mornington Peninsula

Benetas’ aged care facility in Mornington, Victoria utilised the opportunity to extend and upgrade, to adopt significant advancements in aged care design.

A focus on enabling residents, supporting their ability to live independently, and engage in a lifestyle in aspirational shared spaces led the design to improve experiences for residents, visitors and staff.

Generous outdoor decks, courtyards, and cafes and lounges all provide residents with these lifestyle opportunities and the building layout is oriented to take advantage of beautiful sea views.

Rather than match the existing solid square building, the extension creates contrast and takes inspiration from the rolling Peninsula surrounds. This soft and gentle approach is intended to mirror the warm and welcoming environment Benetas want their residents to experience.
