Laurelmead

Providence, RI

This award-winning 164 unit senior residential community is located on the Butler Hospital campus and overlooks the Seekonk River. The S-shaped configuration weaves the building footprint through the tree line, creating entry and recreational courtyards. Gabled roof dormers, bay windows, and traditional brick detailing echo the architectural vocabulary of neighboring historic buildings while the configuration conveys a more contemporary sense of space. Resident amenities include dining rooms, lounges, libraries, a theatre, a pub, a heated indoor swimming pool, and a wellness center.
