Resthaven Retirement Village, Cambridge, Waikato
A forty six unit retirement village, made up of one level, two and three bedroom residential units, is linked to the adjacent Resthaven Retirement Village in Cambridge, Waikato, and is to be delivered during 2014 and into 2015 as a Design Build project. Simple building forms are laid out in a series of stage developments around three inner ring roads, and will provide visitor parking and easy traffic movement flow through the existing campus and into the new village. Expansive indoor and outdoor connected spaces are provided for each villa, with the daily sun cycle penetrating into all interior rooms, including several perimeter window seat areas. Full "Life Care" designed accessibility to all bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens and garaging is provided, to allow for ease of pedestrian movement in and around the building perimeter. Expansive internal walls are provided for the purchaser's existing furniture inventory. Separate formal "front door" entry into each unit is provided, and is set beside the mobility scooter recharging parking space. Extensive landscaping surrounding the unit configuration, delivers the new village into a mature and established park like environment.
