This 120-bed nursing home facility, for Level 2 and 3 care, has 48,000 s.f. on 5 floors. Tessier Associates designed the project to provide a variety of living situations for residents. Unit size and configuration vary, there are small and large social spaces, and corridor length is limited visually. Use of existing site conditions and adjacent plant material was maximized through building orientation and placement of both interior and exterior social areas. Exterior finishes include jumbo-sized brick with limited painted split faced block, and white window frames with blue tint glazing. Granular finished insulated panels are used at selected areas at the base and top central portion of the core areas.
