luxury independent living units
A single storey outmoded nursing home was demolished to make way for 16 luxury apartments facing Narrabeen Lagoon and the ocean beaches beyond. All self-contained apartments enjoy a northerly aspect, most with through ventilation. The new building was required to remain below the tree line to minimise its visual impact from across the lagoon and to the original heritage listed ANZAC building adjacent.
It was important to ensure that any new work should not detract from the significance of the existing ANZAC building and its simple post-war forms.
