type: aged care
status: schematic design
In 2013 MJA explored options for renovations and additions to a Julius Elischer masterpiece of aged care and retirement design. Our design approach was to honour the Mediterranean hilltop village masterplan and insert 10 sypathetic modernist apartments in place of the residential care facility which had reached the end of its design life. With a focus on social interaction and provision of natural light and ventilation our proposal sought to ensure the best quality of life for future residents.
