St. Basils Aged Care Facility, Randwick

Habit8 was engaged by St. Basils Homes NSW Pty Ltd to prepare a landscape design suitable for a multi storey Aged Care Home that facilitates dementia sufferers and the elderly. Our brief was to design the soft and hard landscape layout to each level within the site, an entry from St. Pauls Street, a dementia garden, an access boardwalk through ‘The Grove’ and a garden link between St. Basils and St. Brigidine School.

Our vision was to create a dynamic and active shared space with generous seating amidst colourful, layered planting, views to water from the roof, raised vegetable gardens, fruiting trees, bbqs and shaded dining areas as well as an immersive rooftop reflective garden’. The design includes seasonal, sensory gardens with meandering paths, respite seating at regular intervals and the presence of water.’ A deck terrace floating over lush understorey planting with filtered views through existing fig trees is a key feature of the design and we have proposed shared tables and cafe spill-out areas adjacent to a small children’s playspace to facilitate all users.
