Architect appointed to design Kingston Centre aged care redevelopment

Architectural firm Clarke Hopkins Clarke has been appointed to design the new 150-bed aged care redevelopment at Monash Health’s Kingston Centre in Melbourne’s south-east.

The $134.6 million aged care facility will cater for residents with more complex needs. It will be designed to be dementia-friendly and promote mobility and independence.

The state-of-the-art facility will provide modern single rooms with private ensuites in an environment that feels like home.

The design will also make the most of the surrounding natural environment. Residents will enjoy open area views, an abundance of natural light, and access to terraces and gardens.

A community room, sacred space and other common areas will encourage social interactions between residents, families and the community.

Being located at the Kingston Centre means residents will have easy access to a broad range of integrated aged care services including cognitive dementia and memory services, as well as clinics for falls and balance.

The project is being delivered in partnership with Monash Health and is scheduled for completion in 2025.
