Preserving history while increasing flexibility
EUA worked with the School Sisters of Saint Francis on renovations to an existing nationally registered historic building as well as the design of a new construction residential community apartment complex (RCAC). EUA utilized our proven senior living knowledge to develop units that optimized the Sisters’ needs, while collaborating with an international team to ensure program requirements were met. The EUA team ensured the new designs blended with the historic campus, preserved as much of the historic gardens as possible and followed guidelines set by the park commission.
Throughout the process, EUA worked to understand the Sister’s objectives and goals to deliver a project that exceeded expectations and went beyond design to ensure economic stability for the future; designing units with the ability to be multi-purposed for either RCAC or independent living, allowing for community co-habitation in the future.
