LFA was retained to prepare the architectural design development and documentation for Casuarina Grove, a 100 bed facility on a 6.3ha site at Hamlyn Terrace.
The Casuarina Grove Village consists of ten houses for ten residents each, shared support nodes, central administration including six offices, specially themed gardens, accessways and car parking.
The building complex was designed to cater for aging and intellectually disabled residents previously housed on Peat Island at Brooklyn north of Sydney.
The Village has a domestic rather than institutional character. The buildings are all on a single level for ease of access and the interior and exterior colour schemes ensure that no house is the same colour as the neighbouring house.
