Goodwin Aged Care Services appointed Gilmore Interior Design (GID) as consultants for their new Independent living development at Crace in the ACT in 2012.

Stage 1 was comprised of 3 residential towers, retail tenancies and an impressive lifestyle club facility for residents. Goodwin’s brief to GID was to create a sophisticated and high quality living environment with interiors that are attractive and comfortable for the residents in what is a high density urban environment.

The architecture is contemporary in its form, palette and materials and the interiors reflect and complement it.

Particular attention was paid to creating a point of difference with the design of skirtings and architraves and also utilising a combination of finishes in the kitchen design.

The result is an attractive, contemporary interior that will not date, and also a space that residents can easily furnish and alter to reflect their own style.

GID also created an identifying colour palette for each of the residential towers within the common lift lobby spaces and the corridors. The individual towers are identified by wall graphics in the Entry Lobbies designed by GID, along with the apartment signage.

GID designed the interiors of the Lifestyle club facility and selected all of the furniture and decorative items. Custom designed decorative screens of coloured glass and timber divide and define areas within the open plan.  Dramatic marble finishes were selected for the bar and the reception counter.

A rich textural palette of finishes overall has created an elegant and stylish interior to be enjoyed by all the residents at The Central.

Gilmore Interior Design worked in conjunction with AMC Architects and the construction managers PBS.
