dwp|suters currently has four commissions with Bupa Care Services in Victoria, NSW and SA. This new 142 bed facility is located in an outer suburb of Melbourne, characterised by grand homes on large semi-rural blocks of land. The site had an existing planning approval for a residential aged care building with a footprint that did not meet Bupa’s model of care. dwp|suters design response has been to reinvigorate the planning, specifically responding to the model of care and built form expectations.
We are about pioneering new ways of doing for the benefit of current and future communities.
Our expert teams are structured into four portfolios: Lifestyle, Community, Work and Infrastructure. We deliver projects via teams of highly focused specialists, offering diversity, flexibility and creativity.
We question conventions and norms, engaging in thorough research and enquiry throughout the design process to generate unique ideas developed from first principles.
