Mark Moran Vaucluse is destined to become the leading and most innovative Aged Care and Seniors Living Facility in Australia and possibly the world.
It will comprise of 14 serviced self care dwellings and a 227 suite residential care facility. Residents will have access to a range of on-site facilities, including; luxurious restaurant and café, a swimming pool, gym, cinema, library, beauty salon, and Wellness Centre.
The facility has been carefully sculpted to directly respond to its iconic headland location with the main axis of the buildings running north-south and heights ranging from 9.0m to 12.0m. The proposed buildings “embrace” and form containment to a large public landscaped plaza off Laguna Street.
This landscaped plaza also forms the main entry point to the building for Residents and Visitors. This encourages community “penetration” into the facility from the Vaucluse Shopping Centre which is within very close walking distance.
The proposed buildings are wrapped in a contemporary glazed ‘skin’ which is simple, elegant and sophisticated. The use of the punctuating framed window and balcony elements to the southern facades is used to create a sophisticated, rhythmic aesthetic - dramatically setting this development apart from the institutional norm.
