Client Waterbrook


  • 546 independent living units and 80 care beds.
  • Goal to be the best later living and lifestyle resort in China.
  • Creation of a village hub to support community connections. 

Project objective 

Life3A was commissioned to design a later living lifestyle resort in the Louguan Valley in China. The vision for the resort is to make it the best later living resort in the world for seniors. To fulfil the objective, Life3A developed the concept of a later living community that creates individual and intimate landscaped areas for residents around a more significant village centre.

Client challenge 

The client wanted to make a mark in the Chinese market with a new standard for later living projects that included mixed uses and incorporated age-friendly design principles.

Life3A solution 

The development is centred around a community heart that will be the focal point of the development with a mixture of retail and communal uses. The apartments all benefit from solar access to the south and are open planned for resident flexibility. A grand entry vista with impressive and welcoming buildings sets the scene for what is to be a leading-edge development.

Exceptional outcome 

Life3A’s unique DNA process tailored this project to the local settings whilst setting a new standard in Chinese later living projects.
