EJE Architecture was engaged to design and document the construction of 20 new resident rooms, central facilities to the existing 60 bed RACF and 7 new independent living units adjacent to the recently completed ILU development on the shared site at Hamlyn Terrace. In close consultation with Uniting’s Facility Manager and Development Manager EJE has redeveloped an existing facility that is moving towards Uniting’s new Design Guide and household model.

As a result, the design offers four, twenty bed households along with new central facilities which incorporate a café, activities room, chapel, salon, consult rooms and office space directly accessible via a new carpark and entry roadway. The site planning endeavours to improve internal partnerships within the village by orientating the new entry to the northern side of the building and within easy access for the adjoining ILU residents on site.
