When design counts most

Presentation Description

Aged care of the future has to have a design focus that goes beyond just architecture to encompass sensitive Interior Design, lighting, technology, art, and non-hospital-like re-invention of the equipment and paraphernalia that is associated with ‘nursing’ care'. These are not hospitals. Whilst they are also not domestic houses, the homes we create are a type of communal living that must offer the delight and comfort of home, be connected with the dynamism of the outdoor environment, be legible and reassuring and establish a proud place within the community.

One of the ways CFA research design, is to interrogate recent case studies of ours following research and collaboration with the users and occupants. We examine their performance for ‘best practice’ for aged Care and Dementia management. 

We are proud to present the recent case studies of; 
• The Royce Penrith - 6 storied urban model 
• Dudley Foord House - The Ponds - Anglicare 
• Harbison Dementia Cottages - x 2 houses of 15 residents designed around the ‘butterfly’ care model for people with dementia in Bowral
• New concept designs for new ‘household’ care models currently in progress
• Studies for prefabrication solutions for the Resident Room Module
