Jensen PLUS formed part of a team that prepared a 30 year masterplan for Tanunda Lutheran Homes’ aged care facility in Tanunda. The masterplan proposes a staged redevelopment of the dated and poorly integrated site.

The project steering group wanted to see a new central gathering point for all residents, visitors and general public as part of the new masterplan. Following consideration of a number of different options, the preferred masterplan proposes a large central park encircled by three storey buildings.

The new buildings house an expansion of the residential aged care facility, independent living apartments, and a range of services and facilities at ground level open to the public and visitors. This complex is surrounded by a network of internal roadways with independent living units and a landscaped water trail that runs through the site as a feature and link.

Jensen PLUS provided urban design and statutory planning input into the masterplanning process, and has also prepared a development application and landscape concept plan for Stage 1.
