Bespoke leaf design perforated metal panels were installed as folding balcony screens, welcome signage and walkway panels at a luxury senior living complex in Macarthur, NSW.

Designed by Bickerton Masters, Carrington Care’s new assisted living development called Riverview features nature-themed perforated metal screens throughout, reflecting the beautiful bushland surroundings and the modern resort lifestyle that awaits residents.

Riverview at Carrington consists of 41 luxury apartments as well as shared communal spaces, landscaping, and community facilities.

Balancing independent living with a range of health and care services, Riverview is part of the not-for-profit Carrington Care estate, which offers a variety of senior living solutions to suit all ages and care needs.

Making leaf design perforated panels for Riverview at Carrington

Leaf design

Manufacturing the intricate leaf screens for the prestigious senior living complex, which includes a rooftop terrace, concierge, dining room and communal lounge, began with just a basic drawing.

The Arrow Metal team worked closely with the builders and architects to translate the drawing into a workable eucalyptus leaf pattern, which would achieve all the necessary privacy, ventilation, light flow, and aesthetic requirements across the site.

CAD drawings were created to ensure precision perforation, considering each installation location, panel size and function, from seamless and easy folding capability for the apartment balconies to branded entrance signage.

Arrow Metal manufactured a total of 325 panels for the large-scale project in 3mm aluminium, creating a stunning, cohesive and visually appealing scheme that elegantly matches Riverview’s architecture and branding, while also adding a sense of serenity and nature to each apartment’s interior outlook. The installation was carried out by Trinity Facades.
