Floor area 2,590 m² (27,868 ft²)
The development is designed to optimise the privacy and security of the residents while offering opportunity for social interaction.
The administration building is divided into two elements: the administration facility for the sheltered housing units to the south, occupying half of the ground floor, and a day-care assessment centre, which takes up the remainder of the ground floor and the whole of the first floor.
The apartment block contains 37 apartments over five floors, accessed by two cores. The main living spaces are located to the south for the best views over the river.
The site is landscaped to provide informal outdoor spaces conducive to meeting and passing the time with family and friends in a garden environment.
