Pyramid Residential Care Centre Redevelopment, Stage 2 – Gordonvale

Stage 2 of the Pyramid Residential Care Centre (PRCC) site redevelopment implements the next step of the established site master planning strategy. 

The most recently completed stage of the master plan was jointly funded by PRCC together with the Federal Government Department of Health and Ageing.  This stage included a new 1700m2 approx. 20-bed residential aged care wing with communal and staff support areas. Additionally, an existing building was refurbished as a 5-bed residential aged care wing. Infrastructure improvements included a new laundry building, access road, car parking, covered links and associated services. 

The design of the most recent stage embraces the established site vernacular of the ‘cane cutter cottage’, with steeply pitched roofs and deep verandahs.  The resident spaces are generously proportioned with an emphasis on external access, outlook and the provision of natural light. The interior spaces are highly finished to create a sense of home, affording the highest amenity for residents.
