Gingin Community and Seniors Housing

i

CODA and Foundation Housing were engaged by the Shire of Gingin to develop a concept masterplan and business case for a site in Gingin. The project was for seniors/community housing for those people who are looking to downsize from their existing accommodation and move into a village type location which supports ageing-in-place.

CODA prepared a masterplan consisting of 40 dwellings and several communal landscaped areas on the 2.3 hectare site. Several housing type plans were also prepared and met the criteria of the “Livable Housing Design Guidelines” as set out by Livable Housing Australia. This meant creating house plans that are designed and built to meet the changing needs of occupants across their lifetime. Careful consideration was made to the whole scheme, including the landscaped areas, in order to be appropriate for ageing-in-place living.
