Curtin Heritage


Design Firm: Hames Sharley

The Curtin Heritage Living Project by Hames Sharley aimed to transform a residential aged care facility in Cottesloe, WA, into a warm and sophisticated environment that felt like home.

Creating a sense of familiarity.

The design concept focused on infusing the space with life, comfort, and a sense of familiarity to ease the transition for residents. Materials and furniture were carefully selected to reflect the characteristics of the Waterfront Cottesloe community, including the blue hues of the ocean, the sunset colours, and the natural elements.

Balancing practicality and aesthetics.

Cosh Living provided a range of casual and refined furniture pieces, including Australian-designed and European options, which were customisable to create different moods throughout the facility. Balancing practicality and aesthetics, the furniture was tested for comfort and ergonomics to meet the residents' needs.
