Real isn't how you are made,' said the Skin Horse. 'It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.' 'Does it hurt?' asked the Rabbit. 'Sometimes,' said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. 'When you are Real you don't mind being hurt.' 'Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,' he asked, 'or bit by bit?' 'It doesn't happen all at once,' said the Skin Horse. 'You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.

This image is from an ongoing project documenting Julia's grandparents as they adapt to the new and unfamiliar territory of an aged-care facility.
Bettina and Alistair - otherwise affectionately referred to as ‘Boo & Pa’ - have been married for over 60 years. Roughly half of this time was spent living together in a humble Queenslander, set within the suburbs of Brisbane. Alistair was a pilot & photography hobbyist, and the son of the renowned British stage and war magician, Jasper Maskelyne. Bettina, an identical twin, mother and writer, miraculously survived premature birth in the early 30’s. This resulted in her lifelong battle with cerebral palsy and near-complete deafness. Together they raised three children between Australia and Papua New Guinea, and their unlikely union has proven to be a long, complex, but enduring love. Julia is compelled to explore and understand these transitory spaces, which serve as our senior citizens’ final sanctuary.

Clayton Church Homes Prospect. Connection, presence and rejuvenation were the key design focus for this significant upgrade to the existing 60 bed facility in Prospect. With refurbished rooms, communal areas and a redevelopment of the administration and entrance, the building now functions and connects better so to improve the well-being and lifestyle for the residents. With a mixed use of contemporary and traditional forms and materials plus the upgrade of existing façade, fence and landscaping, the design has rejuvenated the buildings elevation and visibility along Main North road. We worked with the North Adelaide Football Club and the Prospect Council to develop an improved connection with Prospect Oval, including a reactivation of the ovals presence on main north road and clear pedestrian access through to the oval via the ‘Ken Farmer gates’. The development establishes a distinguished visual presence for the area and will help Clayton Church Homes in being recognised for the important role they play in the Prospect community.
Thanks to Clayton Church Homes our trusting client, the builder Harrold and Kite for the fantastic job of bringing our design to life, and @bradgriffinphotography for these amazing photos.
