Opened in 2014, Summerset’s Bishopscourt Village offers a mix of villas, apartments and care apartments as well as extensive recreation facilities. Varying levels of need are catered for, with independent living, supported independence and a range of care options available.


Ignite was engaged to design a three-level main building complex that would support a village of single-level villas on the adjacent site.

By creating a modern environment, with an emphasis on light-filled spaces and high quality finishes, the design of the village created a highly attractive option for people looking for an aged care facility.

The design solution included:

  • 60 three bedroom villas
  • 24 one, two and three bedroom independent living apartments
  • 24 care apartments
  • 48 care beds, with access to a shared lounge and dining room

While the village is located nearby to Dunedin’s city centre, residents also have their own town centre which offers a café, exercise room, hair salon, workshop, bowling green and swimming pool.
