Greenway Views presents a new standard of senior living – one in which atmospheric health, ageing in place and genuine quality of life prevail.
Gray Puksand’s design champions a resounding connection between place, community and care, while empowering residents with a deserved sense of freedom and dignity that goes unparalleled in the aged care and retirement living sectors.
The development was undertaken by LDK Healthcare and Cromwell Property Group, providing 210 apartments across three buildings.
Gray Puksand has taken LDK Healthcare’s pioneering humility and empathetic approach to senior living, eloquently bringing the vision for a new model of senior living to life. Breaking away from the hospital-hotel hybrid mould, Greenway Views provides a refreshing take on the sector.
Greenway Views features three distinct buildings – Arawang, Blundell and Cotter. The villages’ programme is designed to encourage exercise and socialisation while empowering residents with the freedom and independence to lead fulfilling lives.
The project has a total GFA of 26,512sqm, with a total of 210 apartments.
Greenway Views includes over 300 pre-fabricated wet areas that were manufactured off-site, delivered and installed with repeatability and precision.
Colour philosophy is tastefully applied throughout the interior design, acting as a wayfinding tool, combined with interior furnishings, lighting and décor that help the spaces to feel distinctively different, as well as a tool to enhance overall wellbeing.
“Ultimately what our client wanted us to deliver was an environment were the residents felt that this was their home and the we were creating a home environment.” Gray Puksand head of interior design, Brisbane, Maria Correia said.
“one of the huge advantages was that there was a lot of landscaping and that there were individual blocks and there were a lot of elements that we knew would work for this facility.
“We know how important it is as you age to stay in your home, we know the benefits, we know the emotional benefits. So if we can capture this within an aged care facility we [and LDK] felt that we knew we were onto something.”
