Teresian House

Albany, NY

Teresian House involved the renovation and expansion of an existing 300 bed skilled nursing facility, decompressing the rooms from double- to single-occupancy, and the addition of a dedicated 102 bed Alzheimer’s care section. Selective demolition and new construction allowed for programmatic reorganization, dividing the facility into four donut-shaped pods, arranged around courtyards. Each cluster has a direct relationship to a nursing station. The addition included a new 250-seat chapel.
