Sunbird is an ode to Ormond’s orchard-district past. An opportunity for this suburb to continue to blossom with the arrival of a truly remarkable piece of contemporary disability architecture.
For K20 Architecture, it was an opportunity to reimagine what assisted living could not only mean, but also what it could look like for those searching for a greater sense of independence.
Sunbird offers people living with a disability a way to expand their community within a neighbourhood that’s already so welcoming.
Whilst community plays a large role within Sunbird, independence is still key. Care workers are rostered on site 24/7 to provide comfort and support when needed across the 15 SDA apartments that include 1- and 2-bedroom apartments.
Setting Sunbird apart from other disability architecture is its focus on space to both move freely and personalise individually. The modern colours, textures and finishes offer a stylish home ready to be made someone’s own.
All apartments will achieve platinum-level certification under liveable housing design guidelines and an outstanding 8 star NatHERS rating.
Sustainability, personality, community, and so much more in terms of possibilities.
The welcoming suburb of Ormond invites all to be part of its community. Its leafy green streets pay homage to its orchard-district past of the mid 1800s, which are now brimming with shops, schools, parklands, cafes and a robust public transport network at your fingertips.
To be eligible for Specialist Disability Accommodation,participants require SDA approval for a High Physical Support one-bedroom resident apartment.
