卡林顿GATEWAY 养老别墅区由Jackson Teece设计
As part of its growth strategy, Carrington Care is undertaking an expansion of the existing Carrington Care retirement village with the objective of improving aged care provision in South West Sydney.
通过一个设计竞赛，Jackson Teece被委托进行总图设计并对三个地块的要扩建的范围进行建筑设计和室内设计。在Smalls Road的场地是三个地块中最大的一个，也是扩建计划中最重要的组成部分。
Following a design competition, Jackson Teece was engaged to provide master planning and architectural design services for the three sites that comprise this proposed expansion. The precinct to be developed at the Smalls Road site is the largest of the three and as such is a critical component of the expansion plans.
这块场地的旁边是Jackson Teece在2009设计的已建成的Grasmere Terrace护理项目，他被称为入口场地，因为他毗邻于卡林顿养老社区的入口。
This smaller site neighbors the existing Grasmere Terrace which was designed by Jackson Teece in 2009. It is known as the Gateway Site as it sits adjacent to the entry of the Carrington Campus.
Jackson Teece was commissioned to design 19 new residences as a retirement living component within the large range of accommodation offered by Carrington. These three bedroom houses all incorporate car parking and level access despite being located on a relatively steep site.
In many of our ILU projects handrails are not installed until the resident wishes them to be. All walls are reinforced in construction however to enable handrails to be retrofitted when the owner’s needs change and they are easily added to suit. This is so that elderly transitioning in at an earlier age feel like they are still independent – hence the name ILU.
RACF rooms will always have grab rails installed as this is a higher care facility that requires 24/7 assistance. ILUs are seen as being used by many able bodied elderly still and as such they do not want to feel ‘old’ by having handrails until they are ready. This gives them the independence to choose when they need further assistance with grab rails being installed.
