Metlifecare Gulf Rise
Redefining Retirement Living
Gulf Rise is the realisation of Metlifecare’s long-term vision for retirement living in New Zealand.
Consisting of 304 units, Gulf Rise will form one of the largest retirement developments in the country. It will become the new benchmark for quality-designed retirement villages.
Humanised bulk and massing, overall scale, “diversity” in residential offering (villas, manor houses, apartments and care suites) and strong community engagement breaks the stereotypical norm of large, overwhelming blocks on-site.
The scale of the project creates many challenges, which are designed with sensitivity to the overall client and community vision, enhancing the village’s character and relationship with its surrounding context.
