A Coastal Aged Care Retreat within Port Coogee Marina
Inspired by serene coastal living, the Aegis Shoreline Aged Care Facility is situated near the picturesque Port Coogee Marina.
Designed by our team at Hunt Architects, this facility captures the essence of its coastal surroundings, drawing inspiration from the charming finger wharves and adopting a vibrant colour palette reminiscent of traditional beach changing huts. The architectural design of Aegis Shoreline seamlessly integrates functionality with aesthetics. Addressing the unique challenges posed by its proximity to both the coastal climate and nearby freight rail lines.
Through structural and cladding solutions, this strategy offers exceptional vibration and acoustic isolation. Differing use of colour distinguishes it from neighbouring developments, while the careful planning and positioning of the building make the most of the stunning panoramic views over Cockburn Sound.
Residents are treated to a modern and inviting lifestyle, surrounded by state-of-the-art amenities designed for their well-being and enjoyment. Spread across three levels, the facility boasts 234 well-appointed bedrooms, as well as a range of fantastic features, including in-house cinemas, beauty salon, hydrotherapy, and activity areas. Additionally, residents can find solace in the libraries, savour a cup of coffee at the on-site café, and socialize in the open plan living and dining areas.
The Hunt Architects team, led by Group Director Ron Edenburg and Principal Graham Hunt, poured their expertise into creating a space that truly enhances the lives of its residents. Every aspect has been carefully considered to ensure a safe, comfortable, and healthy environment.
