‘The Apartments for Life’, Benevolent Society project Bondi

The proposed design for the Ocean Street project reflects The Benevolent Society’s social concept of housing which will support people’s lives as they grow older/ or become frailer.

Sited near the historic Scarba House, the Society’s proposed Ocean Street project is an innovative model of housing, care and support for older people, with a strong focus on integration with the local community, and through which it aims to make a significant contribution to the challenges of an ageing Australia.

The concept behind the project is based upon the Humanitas Foundation’s Apartments for Life in Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
