Arbor Acres Houses on Bayberry

Winston-Salem, NC

This pocket neighborhood is being inserted near the center of the campus over several phases of construction. The goal of the project is to meet or exceed current design standards and market expectations while maintaining a relatively small footprint. The one and two-bedroom units are approximately 1,000 SF and 1,100 SF respectively and are designed to provide an economical independent housing option. Despite their small size, the houses deliver handicap accessibility, sheltering porches, adjacent parking, cathedral ceilings with dormer lighting, shared garden spaces and covered connections to common areas. It all works to promote a sense of community.

The Village at Orchard Ridge, a National Lutheran Home Community

Winchester, VA

Inspired by the traditional American small town, the chapel and town center form the Village Green which is encircled by a variety of senior living and care options. Located on a challenging 132-acre site, the community exemplifies neo-traditional design and incorporates pedestrian-friendly town planning concepts. Phase I included apartments, community center, patio homes, assisted living and paired skilled nursing and memory care small houses.

Providence Point

Pittsburgh, PA

This 845,000 SF CCRC/Life Plan Community is located on a 32 acre hillside site with panoramic views of the greater Pittsburgh area. Six and seven story apartment wings share a landscaped courtyard that covers an underground parking garage. The health center, assisted living and memory support households are connected to the kitchen, laundry and other services via an underground corridor connection for discreet service deliveries. Phase 2 is currently underway to add more apartments, expand dining and provide a chapel.

The Lutheran Village at Miller’s Grant

Ellicott City, MD

This project began with master planning for a new CCRC/Life Plan Community on a 50-acre site. The recently completed Phase 1 included 205 apartments, 20 assisted living residences, 12 skilled nursing beds and common spaces within six connected buildings. The first phase also included 24 single and six duplex villas, a spa/beauty shop, fitness center and physical therapy suite. We have recently begun design work on Phase II which includes additional commons, skilled care and assisted listing additions, as well as an aquatics center addition.

Greencroft Communities

Goshen, IN

Campus planning for five CCRCs in Indiana and one in Ohio provided a forum for review of the existing properties and infrastructure and development of individual master plans that align with Greencroft’s long-term strategic vision. The design solutions for the six communities, ranging from 38 to 1,150 residents, encompass skilled care, assisted living, memory care, independent living options, commons spaces, and unique opportunities such as a seniors’ outdoor adventure camp, senior oriented RV park and a maple-syrup production facility. We developed a new carriage-home style of hybrid home which provides an affordable option for a ground floor parking garage.

The Apartment Community of Our Lady of the Snows

Belleville, IL

The master plan expands the 1960s-era community through a series of new and repositioned structures. The entrance road will be adjusted for a more direct path to the new campus front door leading into a new lobby, bistro, marketing suite and multipurpose room. Campus additions include an apartment building, duplex and over/under four-plex cottage neighborhood and townhomes creating a pocket neighborhood and courtyard. Renovations will create an additional dining venue, fitness center, spa and multi-purpose spaces. Assisted living will be expanded to include memory support residences and skilled nursing renovations will create separate neighborhoods.
