Acacia Apartments, Belmont
The Colac Grove projects saw an existing aged care facility converted into 20 apartments while retaining and re-using as many of the existing elements as possible.
The existing building was stripped back to basics, extension slabs laid to stretch the apartment floor plates and create balconies. The underground services were re-worked and upgraded to meet the required building code and energy ratings. The $3.5m project included construction of a car-port structure to house 21 apartments with extensive landscaping.
