The Allity boutique aged care facility “Greenwood” in Normanhurst is inspired by the upper north shore manor house, purposefully designed recognising the importance of respecting and enhancing the existing character of the neighbourhood. Greenwood exudes sophistication yet projects the warmth and character of an elegant home. The 107 bed residential independent living facility was constructed over four levels, with split levels that terrace down to accommodate the slope between two street frontages and provides basement level carparking under the facility. The team at JN provided civil and structural engineering design for this project.
