Leading international architecture and design firm, ThomsonAdsett, has designed Australia's first retirement living village for arts patrons

Taking its name from Arthur Streeton, one of Australia's most celebrated artists, Streeton Park is located a short walk from the Heide Museum of Modern Art and overlooks the Yarra River in Melbourne. Recently completed, the $40m project accommodates 85 premium independent living apartments, alongside a business centre, fine dining restaurant, sports bar, salon and wellness centre.

ThomsonAdsett studio leader for Victoria Tieran Kimber says the development indicates the growing need to design for varied lifestyles and interests. "There is no other retirement living village that caters specifically to arts patrons, and it has been keenly awaited here in Melbourne," he says.

The spaces are designed for maximum socialisation and activity between residents, yet also provide resting points for those with low mobility. Colour, materials and textures have been incorporated thoughtfully to appeal to those who enjoy the arts. "Streeton Park is designed for the innovators of Melbourne, and Australia. We have very carefully curated every detail from artwork to light fittings, to appeal to those passionate about creativity," notes Kimber.

Streeton Park was designed in collaboration with Jacobsen Projects (Interior Design).
