Bloom is a boutique aged care community, located in the outer-Melbourne suburb of Clyde North.
Commissioned by family-owned aged care provider Luson Health – and completed in October 2021 – the state-of-the-art residence responds to a burgeoning desire for aged care environments that better support the full range of social, recreational, aesthetic, and practical needs of aged care residents and their families.
Through CHT Architects’ collaboration with Fynnan Construction, SORA Interior Architecture & Design, and bespoke procurement company Detail Furniture + Lighting – the Bloom project has been designed and built to provide a range of modern living and lifestyle facilities more commonly associated with a luxury hotel or high-end retirement community.
The development responds to Luson’s brief to create a modern environment that is inspiring and engaging – supporting independent living with professional care, while fostering a sense of home and community.
Each of the spacious private rooms includes an ensuite and abundant natural light, and there are also areas in the development dedicated to private dining and extended levels of clinical care.
At the same time, residents are encouraged to engage in entertainment activities and social interaction, through the inclusion of shared amenities such as a cinema, café, gym, library, guest lounge and central dining area, as well as extensive outdoor entertaining areas and gardens.
