O'Conor Home - Stage 3 Dementia
O'Conor Home is a residential care home and the exiting home building and grounds is a Heritage New Zealand Historic Place Category 2.
Stage 3 is a new 15 bedroom wing specifically for Dementia residents. Externally the extension is sympathetic to the historic building using similar materials and proportions. Internally the use of bright colours and natural light creates a pleasant environment and assists the residents in wayfinding around the building. Enclosed external courtyards allow residents to safely enjoy outdoor activities.
The contractor for the project was Evan Jones Construction Ltd.
