Rubicon Grove Aged Care Facility


One Care Pty Ltd


Port Sorell, Tasmania


The aim of the project was to provide a brand new state-of-the-art single storey nursing home facility with a beach style theme echoing the atmosphere of the surrounding area.

The 60-bed facility incorporates sitting rooms and resident’s lounges, nurse stations, a reception area as well as staff offices and a staff laundry. In addition, the complex provides doctor’s consulting rooms and a hairdressing salon.

Ease of access

The complex is split into three main wings with tilted roofs coming together to form a large central core area. The wings are joined mid span by linkways for ease of access by staff and residents. The wings are further enhanced by two internal court yards that can be accessed from residents’ rooms.
The centre core, which includes large lounge and dining areas as well as an upmarket kitchen to enable residents to take part in food preparation, has been designed to allow for the expansion of the complex in the future.
