CHALLENGE:
With the completion and speed of occupancy of a previous independent living product on campus (Miralea), this provider wanted to continue to keep pace with the area’s booming long-term care industry by embarking on another project. Based on conversations with residents, a specific desire was uncovered. They wanted space for more meaningful artistic endeavors. As a result, the challenge was to create an arts and culture focused community.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Acreage at the front of the campus, not far from the historic entranceway of the 150-year-old community, provided the perfect setting for this 122-unit complex.
  • A featured element in the atrium is a 1,000-pound, 10-foot hand-blown glass chandelier created by local artists.
  • A corridor spine from this entry point provides art display space (for rotating curated art shows) as it guides residents and visitors through the commons area to a semi-circle ante room and then into a rotunda.
  • Access to a spectacular courtyard from the rotunda punctuates this wayfinding sequence with an eye-catching water feature and enticing gathering spaces.
  • Every detail and amenity inspire engagement and activity, including the designated art studio, 70-person cinema with theater space and a small stage, a performance art center and expanded wellness/fitness areas that include rooms for dance and other movement classes.
  • The project was 90 percent pre-sold a year prior to opening.
