Kingsford Terrace Retirement is a vertical, master planned retirement facility located in Brisbane’s inner south.  Planned over 8 buildings, Kingsford Terrace offers dwellings catering from retirement through to assisted living. The built form is connected and separated through a network of landscaped paths and open spaces.

A grand porte cochere and sculptural landscape welcomes residents and visitors into a communal facility building and pedestrian oriented plaza space.  Communal facilities spill out to an upper landscape terrace and BBQ pavilion overlooking terraced gardens and a central green.  The site’s green core delivers a concentration of deep landscape and sense of relief from surrounding built form.  Contained within the green core are numerous flexible use spaces catering for private gatherings, fitness classes and reflective spaces. Also contained on site is a productive garden to be operated by residents.

This exciting project provides an opportunity to provide accommodation for people seeking interdependent living spaces with the potential for “ageing in place”.
