The Arbour

Location: Berry, NSW
Completed: 2007
Building type: Aged care
Services: masterplan and concept design, design realised by others.

This project provides for 110 houses and a multi-purpose community facility in a high quality self-care development designed to meet the evolving needs of an aging population. Judiciously arranged according to environmentally sustainable principles, three primary house types are juxtaposed in groups to create clusters around large parks. Houses are positioned to frame views of the countryside. Layered from the street with the use of pergolas and privacy screens, they create a varied streetscape to form a village setting.
