Gary Smorgan House

Seniors Living 7,000m2 Complete 2008

Cultural and social cues for design

Gary Smorgon House is a 120 bed aged care facility which allows its residents to enjoy lifestyle choices coupled with the highest quality care. The project saw a new benchmark set for our client in terms of the standard of design and finish for their facilities.

Collaboration was front and centre during the design process, and took into account specific cultural and social habits for this particular community.

As well as key amenities including a café, beauty salon, dining, theatre room and internet café, the design utilised outward looking living spaces to encourage social engagement. This was extremely well received in the delivery both from the residents perspective and economically due to the design approach maximising the net lettable area.
