Parkview Malvern

Seniors Living 4,000m2 Complete 2017

Bringing the outdoors in with a new standard of luxury aged care.

Ushering in a new standard of aged care, Arcare’s Parkview project brief required a hotel style 64 bed aged care facility. The team worked to develop a modern interpretation of the Art Deco style, with a particular focus on bringing the outdoors inside.

Breaking with tradition, separated formal lounge and dining areas were foregone in place of a modern open plan environment with a better visual connection between these key spaces. Residents enjoy a social lifestyle at the cafe, salon, gym and theatre.

A glass link bridge is a key feature in the design, ensuring key operational efficiencies are maintained without compromising views to the park for residents to enjoy year round.

The stunning leafy bushland surrounds and northern edge of the site bordering a beautiful park, offered many opportunities to utilise vantage points and ensure residents views were maximised.
