Chestnut Gardens, Doveton, Victoria
Chestnut Gardens provides residential aged care accommodation for 100 residents including 40 places for people with mental health conditions. The project successfully achieves - through considered planning and the use of appropriate materials and finishes - a comfortable and practical facility. Environmental considerations were integral to the design, in particular through the appropriate building orientation, which allows for maximum penetration of natural light into the building, effective ventilation systems, and well insulated areas that provide a comfortable and fresh environment for residents.
