Working closely with Anglicare and Allen Jack+Cottier Architects, Team Taylor brought the state-of-the-art aged care facility to life, in addition to spacious common areas, beautifully landscaped gardens and terraces, staff facilities and associated carparking. Gordon Quarter also features new community facilities including a Café, snooker room, wine cellar, and outdoor BBQ areas.
Respecting the history and heritage of the existing Burnham Thorpe building was a significant component of this project. By collaborating with the local community, the Taylor team maximised every opportunity to protect and enhance existing architecture, as well as maintain fauna and flora DA requirements. The village also features environmentally sustainable design elements including natural light and ventilation, energy- and water-wise fittings, rooftop solar power, and rainwater harvesting.
