This uniquely-designed independent living facility for seniors features 68 dwelling units. Built partially into the hillside to work with the natural slope of the site, recessing the structure included significant earth moving and other site work. Construction of the wood and metal framed builidng placed an emphasis on energy efficiency. Extensive use of high-efficiency HVAC equipment, water source heat pumps, thermal envelope sealing, and air-to-air heat exchangers provide a “greener” building while still retaining a homey, country feel. Amenities include community rooms, an exercise room, a library, and a hair salon.
