Hammondcare

Location: Sydney, NSW
Project type: Landscape Architecture
Status: Ongoing
Organisation: Hammondcare

COMPLETE Urban worked with the planning officer of HammondCare, Miranda, to develop a beautiful and useful landscape for a proposed building within the site.

This required the consolidation and development of theories and practices that will support people living with – and those caring for people living with – dementia. In a facility such as this, the landscape can be a positive support for the residents, contributing to an environment which minimises confusion, and which provides stimulation and opportunities for calmness and clarity. The landscape also supports staff and families by providing pleasant and useful outdoor places for relaxation and by making necessary management activities which occurs outside of buildings as simple and convenient as possible.
