Greenway Views, designed by Gray Puksand for LDK Healthcare and Cromwell Property, rewrites the book on design for retirement living and aged care – and it strikes a chord. It presents a new standard of senior living – one in which atmospheric health, ageing in place and genuine quality of life prevail.
Located in Canberra, the joint venture between LDK Healthcare and Cromwell Property and delivered by FDC Construction and Fitout breathes new life into five buildings, each with two wings, previously occupied by the Federal Government Department of Social Services. As much an exercise in human-centred design as it is a case for adaptive reuse, Gray Puksand’s design champions a resounding connection between place, community and care, while empowering residents with a deserved sense of freedom and dignity that goes unparalleled in the aged care and retirement living sectors. The central philosophy aims to provide a better quality of life for seniors in an environment that provides a sense of wellbeing and homeliness with an approach that responds to the core values of love, decency and kindness (Published wit Bowerbird).
