Bluecross is positioned to service a discerning aged care market with an elegant and contemporary three-storey residence. The development of this continuous design reads as four commanding townhouses along the main Waverley Road address. The project involved taking down the original residence and reimagining it from the ground up, almost doubling its capacity. Strategies for aged care specific demands such as internal way finding and dementia-friendly design were developed, along with carefully considered interior architecture and design by sister company, Sora Interiors.
The building is home to a cluster of common areas which simulate a lively street, while the residences are nestled in four wings which resemble quiet cul-de-sacs. This echoes the facility’s location on Waverley Road, a fairly commercial, busy interface, which looks inward into leafy Malvern.
A winter garden, library, cafe, hair salon and cinema round out the civic-minded and enriching amenities. The design concept strikes a balance between communal spaces and well-appointed and spacious domestic retreats.
