Sun soaked community.
The addition to an existing campus takes unique shape.
At Sangamon Terrace, the new addition to Bethel Terrace, creation of community was the design goal. Initial programming called for a dire need for community space for the existing 18-story Independent Senior Living apartment tower.
The irregular site and sun path drove the HED design team to a triangular planning solution. Financing required that 24 additional residential units be provided above the new ground floor community room.
The result is an addition that blends with the existing through similar material choices and provides a sunbathed community room adjacent to an outdoor terrace.
