Baptcare Templestowe Orchards Community Project

This project is the first part of a multi-stage redevelopment of an existing aging independent living centre on the site. The project will provide a new home for existing residents and allow the following stages of the development to proceed.
The project included 150 bedrooms over four levels; dining, lounge and activities areas for residents; reception, office and staff facilities; a commercial kitchen; basement car parking; chapel; an internal courtyard: feature marble nurse-stations and external works, including new entry, soft landscaping and furniture.

The works include the demolition of an existing single storey Victorian dwelling and removal of non-protected trees. The retirement community remained operational during the entire redevelopment of the site and consideration to the client interface has been paramount in the delivery of this project.
