  • Aged Care

The Riverside Aged Care Facility is located in Riverside, a north western suburb of Launceston, Tasmania. The elevated and steeply sloping site affords sweeping views over the Tamar River valley. Taking advantage of the site’s orientation and elevation have been primary drivers of our design.

Riverside ACF has been designed to provide its residents with a premium level of amenity and comfort. Riverside will be the home for 60 high care residents together with 30 experiencing dementia. It will include a range of accommodation styles and facilities for residents. All bedrooms include ensuites.

The residents and their support services are located on the upper two levels of the building. Both floors will include a range of spaces for either large or small group gatherings. Extensive use will be made of sensitively considered landscaping that is closely integrated with the architecture.

Bedrooms are organised into 15 room clusters for staffing efficiency and operational need. The development will include a central fresh cook kitchen and full on-site laundry.



  • 90 single bedrooms with a 30 bed dementia care unit
  • 3 levels with under croft car parking and back of house facilities
  • Designed to optimise its hillside location and views over the Tamar Valley
