M by Montefiore at Randwick

Designed by ACAN Member – Jackson Teece Architects

M by Montefiore located on King Street in Randwick is surrounded by a mix of uses, including low to medium density residential development and educational / institutional uses. The master plan for the extension was designed to sensitively address the variety of adjacent uses and built features of the area and complement the existing facility. The proposed built form includes high end Independent Living with height and scale varying on its four elevations to interact appropriately with the changing conditions of the surrounding context.

The public plaza with retail frontages is provided at the corner of King and Dangar streets to complement the existing retail premises opposite at the corner of Church and King Street. At the same time the plaza respects the residential nature of Dangar Street and creates a new public space for the local community to enjoy.

Fundamental to the design philosophy of our Seniors Living projects is to create a “deinstitutionalised” environment, reflected in the style and character of our buildings. Our aim with this project is to create a vibrant residential community for elderly people, not a home for the aged.

Recently completed, this new project will accommodate a variety of apartment types and also commercial, dining, function and recreational facilities. The two new buildings house  79 new apartments whose residents will be able to use and enjoy numerous facilities provided on site to encourage them to remain independent for a longer period.

The facade design has been carefully prototyped and developed using terracotta battens to enhance privacy and sun shading and create a distinctive new character for this well-established community.
