Cranbrook Care Bayswater Gardens
The design for this aged care facility echoes a high quality residential environment that sits in sympathy with its surrounding context and reflects the qualities of a large house, rather than an institutional environment.
Located in Sydney’s inner west region, identified by the Federal Government as an area that requires more Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACFs) to meet the future demands of an aging population, the new facility provides 80 beds for low, high and dementia specific care to residents of the St. Albans Street RACF.
Situated on a predominantly tree lined street the building design is in harmony with the scale of the existing residential buildings in the area, and through the use of high quality materials and finishes is an attractive neighbour.
The site’s aspect to the water and adjacent park provides excellent amenity for the residents and the design maximises the number of communal areas that enjoy this outlook. A new generous public foreshore footpath provides a link between the foot of Charlton Street and Henry Lawson Park.
