ARV TOWN CENTRE, CASTLE HILL NBRS was commissioned to design a concept master plan for Anglican Retirement Village’s new Town Centre in Castle Hill. NBRS’ overarching design philosophy was to integrate a typographically and socially diverse site to secure universal access for all residents by creating unique pedestrian access or focal points. These would unlock the connectivity to the hill and assist residents and community members of all levels of ability & agility to reach the health & wellness support facilities within the Town Centre.
RETIREMENT VILLAGE A RV S T JOHN’S V IL L AGE , GL E BE NS W
For more than 50 years ARV have been enriching the lives of residents by providing friendly communities, nurturing relationships, spiritual support and excellent healthcare. A winner of the Sir John Sulman Architectural Design award, the heritage listed St John’s has a peaceful atmosphere. NBRSARCHITECTURE pioneered inner city retirement living at the St John’s Village. This new model of living located in historic, cosmopolitan Glebe is a stroll away from the bustling Glebe Point Road with its eclectic restaurants, bookshops, boutiques and cafes.
Low rise residential apartments nestled between sunny pockets help to establish a rich but tranquil communal feel. This village-style design promotes the independence of its older residents whilst providing them the assurance and security of a caring community. Co-located within many community facilities this ‘village’ is ideal for active seniors. Residents are able to take advantage of the nearby Victoria Park that features paved walkways and grassy picnic spots as well as a 50 metre pool at the Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre in Pyrmont.
RESIDENTIAL ACCOMMODATION OUR L A DY ’S NURSES OF T HE P O OR , C O O GE E NS W
This commission required the development of residential accommodation and administration facilities for a Catholic order of nuns (the Sisters), Our Lady’s Nurses for the Poor. The Sisters have been on the site since the founding of the order in the early 20th century. Central to the design is the retention and refurbishment of the existing Mt Dudley timber cottage which represents significant value to the Sisters. The cottage was carefully restored and a new residential facility delicately connects with the old in a way that draws attention to the foundation of the order. The design responds to the functional requirements of accommodation, whilst maintaining the continuation of the Sister’s
service and clear definition for the Place of Pilgrimage. The scheme allows the heritage significance to be maintained to the east of Mt Dudley, as well as allowing the significance of the existing avenue of Palms to be retained as the main pedestrian and vehicular access. It also allows the functional separation of activity zones and accessibility for retired Sisters with provision of a lift and constant ground level access. The buildings reflect the heritage significance of the site whilst introducing new crisp lines in the design elements allowing the Sisters to expand and grow into the 21st century.
The design responds to the functional requirements of accommodation, whilst continuing the Sister’s service acting as a clear destination for the Place of Pilgrimage. 9

From within the scheme there is a real sense of community and inclusiveness. The seniors independent living development at 14 Murray Road, which includes 11 freestanding luxury residences, provides the opportunity for seniors to downsize without compromise. The scheme utilises the configuration and slope of the site to conceal much of the new complex behind the existing federation style cottage fronting Murray Road.
From street view, the seniors living units are hidden. This helps to create a real sense of community and inclusiveness. Given the slope of the site and the need to provide level disabled access to all units, a concept for two distinct platforms was adopted, relating to the levels of adjoining properties. The new bungalows are designed as essentially free standing buildings in a simplified and contemporary version of the federation style. Almost every unit is designed as a one off layout to create a sense of variety and interest within a common architectural style.
The landscaping is designed to create a relaxed unifying element throughout the scheme, whilst still providing private and quality outdoor spaces for each of the units. Locating cars underground provides a level surface. The bungalows are grouped around a common garden, giving the impression is of a completely landscaped site, creating greater opportunities for residents to garden larger spaces throughout the complex.

â€œ...Breakfast Point has a genuine sense of community.â€? Bob Rose of Rose Group
Breakfast Point is an excellent example of urban living that suits retiring Baby Boomers. Set by Sydney Harbour in a landscaped setting, a new village has been developed with housing ranging from terrace houses to apartment buildings up to 9 storeys with views over the water. All have large balconies and all buildings are connected through pathways to the village centre with its shops and to the community facilities.
Residents know they are in a special place at Breakfast Point as it is underpinned by a very real sense of security and conviviality. The sense of security has been engendered through the design of the development and the quality of the amenities. Residents can and do meet in the street, at the village centre, on the village green or during their foreshore walks. These interactions help facilitate the development of friendships further underpinning a sense of community. NBRSARCHITECTURE were engaged by Baulderstone Hornibrook to prepare the Design Development, construction documentation and site advice during construction.

Providing accessible and affordable housing, employment and day services to people with disabilities and aged care. 14
Achieve Australia is a not-for-profit organisation that provides accessible and affordable housing, employment and day services to people with disabilities. NBRS designed a development proposal to upgrade the surroundings and buildings of the existing property. The previous development lacked adequate housing as well as areas for resident recreation. NBRS designed a concept plan to add 470 apartments (1, 2, and 3 bedrooms), additional car parking and communal and private courtyard space for residents.
The design was created to encourage integration into the existing community and includes pedestrian connections to surrounding streets, with access to public transportation and adjoining commercial developments. Internal streets were added to promote community interaction and offer links and connections to surrounding communities. Spaces for active recreation, play and community gatherings were included in the concept plan, as well as memorial and heritage gardens providing a connection to the siteâ€™s history.

BISI COMMUNITY VILLAGE CONCEPT B A P T IS T C A RE , GOUL BURN NS W
BUILT ENVIRONMENT The fabric of the physical elements of a space including their arrangement, form and construction methods make up a built environment. Exploring arrangement, form, use and construction methods allows the increasing of amenity and decreasing of construction cost. With an analysis of essential requirements, followed by forward thinking in architectural planning, methods for increasing quality of life and growth of community for occupants can be realised.
Intergration of the built environment, infrastructual networks and social capital. Informing a holistic framework of analysis regarding affordable habitats, the preceding research thesis suggests a dynamic approach developed upon the core social and economic perspectives. The examination of the destabilised market and development cycles within Australia and the exploration of the accepted dehumanised, isolated and comprised quality of living in affordable habitats collectively inform the BISI approach. This approach outlines the integration of the built environment, infrastructural networks and social capital which re-activates the morphological fabric, applying interactive
architectural interventions. In turn this promotes sustainable growth and diversity within all demographical segments through site specific affordable habitats for lowincome households. The BISI Framework is adaptable across the age & demographic spectrum. Its multi-angled, adaptable approach enables bespoke design outcomes for a wide variety of scenarios. The scope of this framework could arguably extend beyond affordable habitats to any facility designed with the purpose of building community. This could span from residential developments to large scale urban design projects.
Infrastructure networks are comprised of the layers of circulation and interface within the context of a space. The planning of housing developments is often disjointed from its context, which enables an impediment to engagement between the interfacing environments, which can lead to isolation. In order to foster multilayered networks of interconnectivity and socialisation, developments should be centred on permeability to the surrounding context.
SOCIAL CAPITAL The bonding and bridging spaces which create and strengthen interpersonal connections. Social spaces are an important aspect of agile habitats. These spaces provide the essential services and facilities that support a householdâ€™s basic living costs from food to recreational activities. Urban sharing spaces promote a collective consciousness that give individuals and groups the opportunity to invest their time, skills or resources.

Architectural services from the first stages of site selection and feasibility through concept design, development and construction were undertaken for mdEquity, a consortium of surgeons wanting a purpose built hospital. This projectâ€™s challenging task is to convert an existing six storey purpose-built office building into a large private hospital, while maintaining its existing character and aesthetic. The building is a large, modern, rectilinear building on a lakeside site, in the centre of the Norwest Business Park. The planning solution for the building has been primarily driven by the positioning of the Operating Theatres. Their requirement for a clear ceiling height being greater than the existing structural floor to floor height
available and their need for new dedicated air conditioning systems dictated that they be located either on the fourth floor or on the ground floor. The leading-edge facility incorporates 10 operating theatres inclusive of dedicated day surgery ophthalmology operating rooms, dedicated day surgery endoscopy units and short, intermediate and major surgical operating theatres. The facilities also include specialist post-operative in-patient and out-patient rehabilitation facilities; a specially designed on-site hydrotherapy pool; specialist onsite consulting suites; specialist on-site radiology and pathology, with a state-of-theart design allowing efficient movement of patients throughout the facility.
In addition, it boasts high quality international conference facilities with 300 parking spots available on-site and extensive landscape works.

The hydrotherapy pool, within the Hospital for Specialist Surgery adds benefit to postoperative care services on offer.
Pool floor tiles are non-slip for safe grip. Handrails are continuous into and out of the water.
The redevelopment of this commercial office building into a specialist hospital presented enormous challenges in all aspects.
The facility features a high quality finish.
The decision to add the hydrotherapy pool was taken during course of planning as an addition to scope. The pool adds significant value to the rehabilitation of patients after hip and knee replacements. The innovative curved ramp provides access into the pool and curves around a bubble seat feature.
COMMUNAL OPEN SPACE L A ND S C A PES T H AT BRING PEOPL E TOGE T HE R
As residential developments shift towards higher density solutions, designing spaces that offer privacy while retaining quality of life presents a challenge. Landscape designs must work to allocate private open spaces while allowing visual access to common areas. Keeping structures centrally located and positioning pathways away from private space maintains privacy by minimising pedestrian traffic. Additionally, strategically placed planting (screen planting) gives occupants visual access to common areas below, while preserving privacy.
The design of outdoor spaces is an integral aspect to be considered when constructing multi-unit developments. Incorporating both common and private outdoor spaces provides occupants with opportunities to connect or relax in areas that offer shade, sun and attractive views from all angles. Designing spaces that occupants desire to use might consist gathering areas, with outdoor furniture where residents can eat together and quiet areas where residents can relax. Appropriate plant selection for these landscapes is also an important consideration.
While multi-unit developments offer considerable benefits for high density areas, there are potential challenges to address throughout the design process. It is important to construct open spaces that have both visual and physical connections to nature while maintaining privacy and security. Designing spaces that are highly desirable to occupants can be achieved through appropriate plant selection, the incorporation of areas that have access to sun and shade and facilities that support social interaction.
COMMUNAL OPEN SPACE L A ND S C A PES T H AT BRING PEOPL E TOGE T HE R
Public art has become increasingly popular within urban contexts around Australia and the world. Public art within a residential context is now a requirement of most major developments as councils recognise their great benefit to communities. Residential open spaces can include opportunities to showcase art, or for the community to create their own art, for gathering and community interaction.
A key factor in building a genuine sense of community in residential developments is transforming the idea of â€œsharedâ€? from negative to positive. Australians are obsessed with residential privacy, while being simultaneously renowned for casual yet enthusiastic social activity. Traditionally apartment living has been associated with lower socio-economic status, but in recent times has evolved into a luxury commodity because of the lifestyle it enables. As the population grows, residential developments must shift towards higher density solutions.
While a physical shift towards density is relatively straightforward to achieve, an attitude shift poses a greater challenge. The way that residential developments are designed must promote positive culture and work hard to support genuine community to be successful. The end goal would be for community members to recognise the benefits of living in close proximity to others, that it can yield increased amenity and quality of life.
COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT AND WELLNESS CENTRE CH A RL ES S T URT UNI V E RSI T Y, A L BURY
The spaces are designed to be family friendly and accessibly to all walks of life, featuring colours that reflect a sense of renewal, peace and nature. The Charles Sturt University Community Engagement & Wellness Centre at Albury is an on-campus clinic that provides the students an opportunity to apply their newly developed coursework skills in an authentic clinical work environment dealing with real people with real issues.
An aim of the new centre is to move away from reactive medical treatment by encouraging â€œwellnessâ€? through prevention and intervention based services. Consequently the centre will have an innovative role in health care. Students will learn inter-professional competencies for collaborative teambased practice where clients can come to the centre to have their health identified and treated by a variety of health service professionals under the one roof. The services on offer include podiatry, physiotherapy, psychology, speech pathology and occupational therapy, amongst others.
The spaces are designed to be family friendly and accessible to all walks of life. There are views of the natural landscape through visual connection of major spaces in the building. NBRSARCHITECTURE Interiors Team designed the spaces to encourage community engagement and wellness: fresh & natural. The use of lime green is to provide a tranquil and refreshing environment, reflecting a sense of renewal, peace & nature. It is complimented with a neutral colour intended to relax patients mentally and alleviate any anxiety.

“...a ‘wellness neighbourhood’ that engages the community.” Preventative healthcare must be seen as an integral part of the healthcare professionals role, and of the community. Studies have found that the returns on investments in proven community-based disease prevention are substantial, US$6.60 for every US$1 invested. A person’s healthcare life-cycle involves three phases, each may be characterised by its preventative or responsive nature. To lessen the burden on the ‘respond’ zone, prevention must be everyone’s business. By increasing the resources allocated to prevention in both the ‘prepare’ and ‘remember’ portion of a person’s life, we can shift the drivers of detrimental health behaviours which result in poor health and chronic illness. An opportunity for Australian healthcare lies in a ‘wellness neighbourhood’ that engages the community and empowers life-long health activism rather than episodic care. The built environment should engage the community in a mission for wellness. A series of community fixtures that engage patrons in physical, mental and social health in order to empower a sense of familiarity in the broader health environment.
Neighbourhood Within the body, blood is transported around the circulatory system, directing flow of unhealthy blood through the heart and lungs, then once restored, back to the extremities. The Wellness Neighbourhood takes on a similar role: directing and creating connections to and from the Community Hub (‘The Heart’). If you think about the body, the circulatory system houses the heart and the lungs, both vital components. If we perceive the Neighbourhood to be the ‘circulatory system’, the Hub as ‘the heart’ and the Core as ‘the lung’, the Hub and the Core serve as
the inner-most parts, vital to the function of the Neighbourhood. Within the Neighbourhood, residents encounter a number of zones (The Nutritive Zone, The Active Zone, The Interactive Zone, The Reflective Zone and The Park) designed to promote physical, nutritional and psychological well being.
HUB Zones throughout the Community Hub give patrons opportunities to take charge of their health, not just within the community, but as a part of their everyday lives. Like the circulatory system in the body, healthy knowledge and lifestyle is pumped from the heart (Community Hub) into the community through active, nutritive, interactive and reflective zones. These zones offer a variety of mini hubs for residents to seamlessly connect with others in the Social Zone, access medical care in the Check-in Pod or embrace community life in the Care Zone.
The Gateway Pod increases the efficiency and flexibility of patron care with supportive health care professionals through the layout of individual pods that are centred on privacy and comfort. The design of each pod offers an interactive screen, flexible furniture and natural lighting. In the medicinal centre, the Practice Zone includes 3 pods that offer a forum for multidisciplinary care for patron consultation and examination, enhancing the experience and increasing efficiency. These pods are patron-centred, resource based rooms with the flexibility to expand and contract according to need. The Re-zone is a ‘day care’ retreat space providing the supportive reassurance of the Regenerative Core facilities – with the aim of taking pressure off hospitals and rehabilitation centres. It is comprised of private pods and a communal breakout space allowing patrons to choose privacy levels, activities and spaces.
The process of moving through the Community Hub is much the same as blood pumping through the heart. Just as there are two pumps in the heart, there are two journeys through the hub. As the inward pump provides an avenue to the educational and medicinal centre (the Regenerative Core), the outward pump provides an enlightening journey back into the community.
CORE Within the Regenerative Core residents are engaged and empowered through the combination of a medicinal and educative centre where they encounter regenerative healthcare professionals, ‘the oxygen’ within the lung. It is here that residents encounter the Gateway Pod, the Practice Zone and the Re-zone.
