independent living units
The project brief called for attractive yet economical accommodation as part of an existing seniors living village in Sydney’s north. The masterplan included a new residential aged care facility as well as 76 independent living units (ILU’s).
Young+Metcalf completed the site masterplan with a more current Independent Living Units (ILU’s) range of housing. Existing accommodation on the site included one and two storey walk-up apartments in the form of cluster housing constructed in the 1980’s and 1990’s. New accommodation reflected the simple forms of the existing housing using a contemporary aesthetic reinterpretation.
All new housing is accessible either by lift access or by over/under townhouse design taking advantage of the site slope.
