Acacia Park is located in the beach side village of Omokoroa, north of Tauranga. With an existing facility providing 45 resthome and hospital care beds, BKB Team Architects was engaged to design an extension of a new 20 bed high-care unit. Making the most of the sun and views and set to follow the contours of the site the new building has been located where it overlooks the estuary with views towards the distant Kaimai ranges. All rooms are large and have a mixture of individual ensuites and shared bathrooms. A nurses station and large lounge sit at the centre of the new facility providing an efficient work environment for the staff. The new unit has been effectively integrated into the existing facility through the development of a common lounge and dining space. This will become the new hub and the focus of activity for the whole facility.
