Two multi-storey apartment buildings for independent living have been completed as the first stage of this Aveo Carindale project. Our team produced a site master plan that delivered greater density, more green space and shared facilities – encouraging social connection. The residence enables elders to remain living independently as part of their local community, even as their needs change.
The new buildings comprise one, two and three-bedroom apartments with an exceptional quality of interior finish, plenty of natural light and an easy to navigate layout. The development includes recreational and dining amenities such as a restaurant, bar, library / business centre, outdoor swimming pool, gymnasium, movie theatre, games room, activity room and beauty salon.
The buildings were designed to make the most of the site’s aspect, with communal areas looking eastward over leafy parkland. An arbour reaches north-south through the site, defining circulation and creating entries.
Aveo Carindale is the FMSA Architecture Award for Best Retirement Living Development National Finalist. The National Winners will be announced on 23 November on the Gold Coast as part of the National Retirement Living Summit.
