Seniors Living Re-imagined

Allen Jack+Cottier’s Peter Ireland discusses the new state-of-the-art high care residence for the elderly at Quakers Hill

A brand new, contemporary high care residential facility for 128 residents at Quakers Hill, NSW, is underway, to replace one that was partially destroyed by fire over a year ago. The client, Domain Principal Group, first commissioned AJ+C to review possible options for the existing site, ultimately opting to build a completely new high care facility. The new residence includes 104 resident rooms, large living and dining rooms, kitchen, laundry, library and coffee shop. A series of courtyards provides access from the high ceilinged living rooms to the gardens, one of which will contain a memorial accessible to the public.
