INVERLOCH, VICTORIA: BUILDING COMMUNITIES

This project has enabled the older residents of Inverloch to stay together having links to the local community


This project is a notable example of collaboration between a social housing organisation, a local council, a local interest group supporting the need for housing affordability in their local community, and the State government which has resulted in the success of community housing.

This project enabled the older residents of Inverloch to stay together having links to the local community.

Adjacent to a nature reserve, this development for the elderly includes 14, two bedroom units and 4, one bedroom units arranged around access driveways, with a barbeque area and communal. Most of the units are wheelchair accessible and all have a carport adjacent to the front door.

The design of the units reflect the rustic and the coastal setting with pressed red & blue brick and hardwood board and batten cladding sourced locally. The roofs and ceilings pitch up over the living areas to catch sun and light giving these rooms more sense of space.

All units include solar hot water service and are a minimum of 5.5 star ratings. This stunning complex exudes practicality coupled with flair while making most of its surroundings beautiful.

This project was completed and handover within the scheduled time to the residents of Inverloch in 2008 in partnership with Inverloch Residential Aged Care Development Committee, the Bass Coast Shire Council and the State Government of Victoria.
