100 dwelling retirement village with community facilities around an existing golf course.
The client purchased the site with an existing DA for 115 units. Playoust Churcher Architects were commissioned to re-design the proposal to create a development consisting of 100 individual houses, community facilities and re-development of the existing golf course and clubhouse facilities.
As the golf course was adjacent to a creek, it was imperative to have a close working relationship, not only with council and our consultants, but also the Department of National Resources and Rural Fire Services.
Council were very supportive of the new design seeing that it fulfilled the community’s needs of providing additional accommodation for the over 55 age group as well as linking to the existing township of West Wallsend.
They were impressed with both the design of the individual houses and the surrounding amenity in terms of separation, landscaping and privacy. Sustainable initiatives such as grey water recycling and energy efficient designs were also supported by council and implemented. Playoust Churcher Architect’s sustainable green program ensured the development obtained a 5 star NaTHERS rating. With careful co-ordination and detailed design, council approval was granted in 3 months.
Sharon and Kwan purchased their 1930s Pymble home with the aim to renovate. The home had good bones but features such as an external laundry and narrow garage meant that the home needed an upgrade for modern family living.
Bill is a developer with many years of experience in medium density housing. He has worked on a wide range of projects but in recent years his focus has been on SEPP Seniors living.
Lisa is a keen gardener. In fact her passion was so great that she left her career in corporate insolvency to move into landscape design. So when she renovated her 6500m2 estate in St Ives, she started with the garden.
