Addressing the global ageing challenge needs a new approach.
Two decades of innovation and success in delivering later living and aged care projects has led Marchese Partners to establish Life3A as a global specialist in the sector.
For the past two decades, the Marchese Partners team have been on a mission to improve later living and care quality globally. The internationally recognised firm has successfully delivered an extensive portfolio of innovative and successful later living and aged care projects worldwide.
That experience has led to the conclusion that it takes more than exceptional design to positively impact people's lives as they grow older.
Life3A has been established to discover and deliver holistic solutions in aged care and later living. It is based on a multidisciplinary approach to the dynamic and complex challenge of ageing with quality of life.
Life3A London Principal Stewart Dean said the firm would seek solutions to the ageing challenge beyond the realm of the built environment.
"Architecture and design are only one piece of the puzzle in solutions that support people in better ageing. We now accept that our mission and purpose need to engage with a broader group of thinkers, innovators and industry experts to deliver on our mission to improve people's lives truly.
Life3A will bring together experts in the field to deliver knowledge and solutions in the areas of strategy, design and research to help later living developers, operators, and investors meet the challenges in later living and aged care.Stewart Dean
Life3A has evolved out of the progressive developments and insights gained in retirement living and aged care that Marchese Partners has delivered over the past 20 years. Life3A has opened studios in London, Sydney, Madrid, Christchurch, Kuala Lumpur, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Adelaide.
"We are currently contributing to numerous iconic and leading projects in the sector globally," Mr Dean said. "Life3A we will be able to go further and provide assistance to many other organisations in the word that need forward-thinking solutions to their problems in the later living and care sectors.
