Team2 were commissioned to look at feasibility options for the development of a new site in Richmond, south east Melbourne.
Proposals were to develop the site to offer a range of aged care accommodation for residents in different rooms and suite configurations. Proposals were developed for 64 bed, 75 bed, 100 bed and 150 bed options.
The existing two storey dwellings on the site date from the 1850’s and are of ‘individually significant’ heritage grade. Proposals included sympathetic conversion and restoration of the heritage buildings as the front of house communal areas to the facility with the new room suites located to the rear.
