Melocco and Moore architects were commissioned by Uniting Care Ageing to re-purpose an old Katoomba guest house with an aim of converting the existing building to affordable housing for an ageing population in the Blue Mountains. Our objective was to provide quality accommodation whilst retaining existing historical art deco brick fa├žades. ┬áDavid Melocco attended the recent opening of the building, where residents are already enjoying their new accommodation, large common room and landscaped gardens.
