Melrose Park Aged Housing

WAX Design, in conjunction with Energy Architecture looked to provide a design solution which creates a sense of community, engagement and pride and for the residents of this medium density SA Housing development.


Open semi private coutyards, shaded seating alcoves and communal areas all offer the individual an opportunity to pause, converse and interact.
A native, low maintenance garden with an organic materials pallate provides a durable and enduring landscape which links through to the mixed use car park and pedestrian access, bounded by swales and rain water storage.
