CHALLENGE:
Originally conceived as an upscale community, the challenge was to carefully rethink the program and product to respond to a new set of economic realities.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Though simplified in terms of unit choices and overall complexity, the design maintains a high degree of style, finish, and drama influenced by an Arts & Crafts Movement inspired vernacular.
  • The design team was successful in convincing community leaders that an alternate style to an “all brick culture” was possible and worthwhile.
  • Located on a long, linear site, the components were carefully arranged to maintain the street edge by locating independent living wings along the primary street frontage. Traffic is diverted into a motor court defined by other independent living wings and the main entry.
  • The design of the commons areas and the assisted living component creates a kind of “village” layout and atmosphere, which helps to break down the scale of the large 390,000 square-foot program.
  • To maximize overall flexibility and efficiency, the public spaces are conceived of as a series of flowing and interconnected spaces that can serve both small and large gatherings.
  • The project is designed to accept a significant IL expansion along with additional fitness amenities.
