Marcato Self-Care Retirement Village

Gundagai St, Coffs Harbour

This integrated garden retirement complex was designed under the provisions of SEPP 5, and comprises 21 attached dwellings plus a swimming pool and gazebo.

The dwellings conform to the relevant adaptable housing criteria and feature 5 alternative floor plans to achieve a northern aspect to all living spaces and courtyards.

The site is traversed by a drainage easement and required filling above flood level. A density equivalent to 26 dwellings per hectare was nevertheless achieved, without compromising the amenity of the village or the neighbouring properties.
