Marco Polo Residential Care Facility Woonona

The village is 164 beds with a mix of high and low care beds, as well as specialist dementia, divided into 6 zones. Recognising the changing lifestyle expectations of retirement village residents, Marco Polo Woonona proposes a “Civic Hub” within the development creating a communal space where residents can leave their rooms and associated living/dining areas to get together or meet visitors in a public space that functions as a Community shopping centre.

Site area

Watergum Way, Edgewood Estate, Woonona, NSW

The Requirements

The publicly accessible Civic Hub is separated a more secure area which includes physiotherapy rooms; private dining room/board room; as well as the administrative offices. The public area of the facility includes a café adjacent the reception, which opens into an overflow dining area and covered forecourt. A hairdresser, beauty salon and doctor’s rooms, positioned around a common waiting area, are located adjacent the cafe dining area. A larger multi-purpose room is available for the general public as the opportunity for community activities integrated with the retirement village is seen as a positive outcome.

The Solution / Outcomes

A small shop completes the “shopping centre” frontage to the development and this is located adjacent the loading area and storage separating the servicing requirements from the public forecourt.
