Prestons Lodge is a 140-bed aged care facility located in South West Sydney offering residents a superior level of hospitality, accommodation and services.
As this was Northrop’s first project with Advantaged Aged Care, we took the time to understand the organisation’s goals, values, and drivers. We learned that the creation of a homely environment for residents was a priority for AAC. We were also aware that this was a tightly constrained site and we needed to comply with acoustic restrictions imposed by the building’s proximity to residential homes.
We gave careful consideration to the products we selected for the project to help create a warm environment for residents. We also designed the central mechanical plant to minimise its footprint, effectively screening it from adjoining buildings.
