We opened up the space by raising ceilings, adding bigger windows, widening corridors and leveling uneven floor elevations. The cottage-style exterior replaces what could have been an institutional-looking facility, with one that looks more residential and welcoming. With the site’s unbroken, circular design, residents have access to a continuous, air-conditioned pathway for exercise. A centralized courtyard, enclosed by the building’s corridors, offer a safe outdoor area for residents to walk without chance of wandering off-site.
