Wesley House Aged Care has been named joint winner of the ACS SA&NT Award for Excellence in Aged Living Design.

The awards were announced on Friday, June 23, at a dinner at the National Wine Centre, attended by hundreds of people from across the sector.

Wesley House was recently transformed with a $40 million redevelopment of the site on Military Rd, Semaphore Park.

Kennett Builders and Adelaide architects Walter Brooke & Associates are behind the stunning new-look Wesley House, which originally opened in 1951.

The three stage project was completed over three years, and features 168 private bedrooms with en-suites, large activity spaces, a hairdresser, café, secure memory unit and more.

Landscaped outdoor gardens and courtyards allow residents to spend quality time in the fresh air, with flower beds, veggie patches and colourful animal statues creating an element of fun.

Residents moved in to the final stage of the redevelopment in October and the project was officially launched with a celebration in May.

UCWPA Executive Manager Aged Care Deborah Burton said the award was testament to the hard working team behind the project.

“We are so proud of Wesley House and the state-of-the-art facilities it provides for the residents who live there,” Ms Burton said.

“This award is a fabulous recognition for the team who worked tirelessly for three years to bring this project to life.

“Thank you to everybody who helped create this stunning building, which will provide a modern, comfortable home for our residents for years to come.”
