Brightwater Birralee

Brightwater Birralee is a facility that supports both permanent residential care clients and transitional clients as they navigate the passage from hospital to full time care or home — particularly those with specialist dementia needs.

MKDC support this transition by designing physical environments that help these clients quickly gain the comfort of familiarity and normality. The spaces at Birralee are designed to encourage interaction and the formation of rapport and comfort.

This facility was refinished with feature colours, curated artwork and residential styling to support comfort and connection while aligning to the design guidelines.

The outcome was a wonderful home-like interior that impacted not only the clients but staff morale and the overall atmosphere.
