John James Village provides a tranquil and self-sufficient ‘home away from home’ for patients and their carers in ACT/NSW undergoing treatment for life threatening blood cancers at the
Canberra Hospital. 

The Village includes six purpose designed self-contained accommodation units (one three bedroom, four two-bedroom and one one-bedroom), an administration building, a recreation building and extensively landscaped grounds over approximately 8000 m2 of land. 

The change in levels from the top of the site to the bottom, contributes to the village feel because
each accommodation unit and the communal buildings are all on their own level and they all sit within the natural landscape.

Project Coordination worked with the Foundation to secure industry contributions toward the funding of the project.
