The new village at Greenway Views captures the core principles of LDK – Love, Decency, and Kindness. nettletontribe’s design brings together the vibrancy of a retirement village with the care capabilities residents require in their aging journey.
Offering 117 independent living apartments, Greenway Views Stage 2 is a continuation of the redevelopment of the former Federal Government Department of Social Services. With the first stage completed in mid-2020, nettletontribe was engaged to provide feasibility and conceptual design services for the remaining two of five existing blocks, providing a mix of studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom apartments for prospective residents and the addition of a communal café and bar for the residents.
Responding to LDK’s brief, the interior design features elegant yet comfortable spaces for the residents to call home. Drawing from the colours of nature, nettletontribe derived four interior schemes to offer a diversity of tastes. Pops of green or blue paired with classic accents and detailing, meet the modern interior aesthetic.
Seeking to design a communal space where the design encourages residents to gather and socialise, the communal bar was a significant element of the overall project. The key conceptual drivers were to combine a modern tropical haven with a vintage lounge. With an abundance of textures, colours, and prints, it delivers an intentionally maximalist and welcoming atmosphere for residents as they socialise and relax. Nooks frame the fireplace, designed in a vintage style and embracing the charm of antiquity and the bar layout creates pockets of space. Residents are offered quiet, cosy spaces by the fireplace, whereas the bar opens upwards and outwards to frame the panoramic views of the Brindabellas. Utilising the time-honoured elements of classic interior detailing, nettletontribe’s design enhances the bold elements against the background of contemporary aesthetics and functionality.
