Baptcare Strathalan

Luxury retirement living designed to facilitate a joyful and active aging journey.

BLP were recently engaged to undertake a design review of the project’s current masterplan. Based on our proposed vision and design for the site, we were further engaged to redesign the existing Schematic Design for Stage 2 & 3 of the Strathalan redevelopment, comprising a new retirement living apartment building including 37 ILAs and a community centre, refurbishment of an existing heritage building for wellbeing and ancillary spaces including 32 ILUs.

The Baptcare project was designed to promote active and independent living within a safe and secure environment, the community centre provides opportunities for engagement and connectivity for the residents. High-end finishes create a “club” like feel and the sense of “having made it”. In aligning with a key briefing requirements of Baptcare, the community and residences are designed to allow couples to age-in-place and seek access to services if and when they require them.
