General Description

Located in Huntsville, Alabama, this project includes forty –five long-term care beds and forty –five short-term rehabilitation beds.  The design concept was to provide functionality and flexibility without overlapping the long-term and short-term care populations.  Flexibility within the facility is provided by resident activity areas which include multiple dining rooms, resident recreation areas, sitting areas sun rooms and screened-in porches.  These spaces look out into two centrally located courtyards, whose multi-surfaced areas serve as an extension of the Physical Therapy gym, as well as, a functional space which allow for resident activities to transition to the exterior, providing a space for secure outdoor events and activities.  The Physical Therapy gym has a dedicated entranceseparate from the primaryentry and is intended for use by outpatients.  Accessible walking paths and landscaped garden areas enhance the exterior areas of the facility and help to connect residents to nature.
