New apartment development for the elderly and war widows. The 22 bedroom building has been split into 2 blocks.

The street frontage block contains only 4 apartments and has the central lift and stairs. This street frontage block is 2 storeys high – the smaller massing and scale reflecting the surrounding residential houses.

The rear block is 3 levels, contains 18 apartments and is positioned lower down the site. Private gardens and a protected community courtyard link the two blocks. On the external elevations, timber weather boards and precast concrete panels cast in a weather board pattern have been used to reflect the residential site and setting.
