QuARTz by ACO - bathroom drainage

Aveo Durack Aged Care Facility, Brisbane, QLD

The Aveo Durack retirement community is located 17km from Brisbane’s Central Business District and is situated in a bushland setting with lush landscaped gardens.The facility offers a range of aged care living options including independent living units,villas, serviced apartments and recently opened a new 120 bed high-care home on the site. The home enables residents to receive a high level of care and remain close to partners and established friendships.

Project Design Brief

The designers wanted a sophisticated style and a modern one-way fall to the drain in the wet areas. To ensure the residents feel safe when moving around the bathroom, the drain needed to be positioned away from the centre of the room and the primary line of site.
