Check out this subtle yet elegant façade treatment recently unveiled as the last part of the Stage 1 works for the Goodwin Village Redevelopment project. Thanks to innovative Locker’s Atmosphere Façade system, AMC has designed a unique graphic element to the Village’s newest building, featuring a wheat motif super-graphic expressed through a perforated metal skin – a nod to William Farrer, a leading agronomist of his time and ‘father of the Australian wheat industry’. Stage 2 is now well underway so watch this space!
Documentation for the Denman Prospect Community & Child Care Centre is in progress and approaching an important milestone for the project. The Centre will form part of Capital Estate Development’s exciting new Denman Village precinct, a project in which AMC has continued to play a key role, designing and delivering the local centre mixed-use development in late 2018. Contrasting materials and geometric forms create a striking built form that takes its cue from the surrounding context. The Centre will accommodate a childcare centre at ground level with a community centre above, both of which will benefit from expansive views and excellent solar orientation to create light-filled internal areas and dynamic external gathering spaces.
Congratulations to the design team on a wonderful concept, we eagerly anticipate the next stage of this exciting project!
AMC is excited to announce that The Central @ Crace by Goodwin has been nominated as a finalist in the National Retirement Living Awards for 2019! The Central has been recognised as an innovative new approach to seniors housing and recently won the 2019 Rider Levett Bucknall ACT Property Development of the Year Award.
Stage 1 of the Goodwin Farrer Redevelopment was completed recently with the brand new Clubhouse now open for business!
The Clubhouse is distinguished from the rest of the development by its exposed structural elements revealed the light-filled double-height spaces of the new social hub for the Goodwin Farrer community. Inside, the Clubhouse a serene material and colour palette of blonde timbers and dark tiled surfaces set against the natural tones of soft furnishings and acoustic wall panels creates a relaxing and restful environment. An open fire place with full height log wall is a key feature of the Clubhouse, enhancing the spacious and light-filled atrium that promises to be a popular social hub for the residents.
Zenith recently published a profile of the Clubhouse featuring a number of furniture items that are ideal for this setting without compromising on style and elegance. Click here to check out the case study.
AMC is excited that The Central by Goodwin has won the 2019 Rider Levett Bucknall ACT Property Development of the Year Award at the PCA’S “Roman Empire” themed ACT Awards night on Friday! This high quality retirement living development, designed by AMC, has been recognised as an innovative new approach to seniors housing that successfully integrates a new community into the heart of Crace, offering residents a range of housing choices and, unlike many such developments, their own front door. As a mixed-use precinct, it is effectively an extension of the Crace village centre and includes a sophisticated central urban landscaped area. This is the second time Goodwin has won this award, again supported by AMC, and the development is now a strong candidate for the Aurex Group Award for Best Retirement Living Development at the National PCA Awards night later this month. We wish Goodwin the best of luck!
Congratulations to all involved and to the other industry winners on the night.
