The award-winning restoration and adaptive reuse of this historic school into a 61 unit assisted living facility was especially challenging with regard to internal circulation. Although only four-stories in height, the 60,000 square foot building had 13 different floor levels. The design solution created two internal ramps and two new elevators, providing access to every level with maximum economy of movement and travel distance – a critical issue in assisted living environments.
