Community centre opens at Buderim Gardens

Friday, 13 September 2019

Take a look at the modern new community centre for residents at Australia’s oldest privately-owned retirement village.

Residents at Buderim Gardens are celebrating the official opening of their new community centre. And it’s fast becoming the social heart of the community. 

Developed in consultation with residents, the building is sustainable and built for the future. Solar power and thermal features make the centre more energy-efficient. It heralds bright days ahead for the oldest, privately-owned retirement village in Australia. 

Built for residents to gather together 

Architecturally designed, the building is a multi-functional space. It includes moveable walls allowing the space to grow and shrink as needed. 

Residents are enjoying the centre’s huge kitchen with ample café-style seating and 2 outside decks overlooking the lake. There’s also a movie room, gym, and an outdoor pool with shady space for yoga, meditation and stretch classes. A billiards room and craft room provide extra spaces for socialising and activities. And there’s a large auditorium for bigger gatherings and dance classes.

A space for everyone

Accessibility was another strong focus in the design of the new centre. There are 6 undercover mobility scooter parking spaces. And with a single-level design, residents don’t need to use a lift or take stairs in their community centre. 

Village management and the project team worked closely with residents to create a facility that reflects the Sunshine Coast lifestyle. The single-level centre delivers a range of impressive features, with expansive terraces overlooking the lake and rainforest. The space maximises airflow and natural light, creating comfortable spaces with energy efficiency in mind. 

Residents and staff are thrilled with the newest addition to Buderim Gardens. The community centre sees the village evolve with the future while remaining true to its heritage and strong community values.
