Institute on Aging
This project encompassed transitional housing for the elderly, daycare for adults (primarily Alzheimer’s patients), education and fundraising, and community outreach functions; it was co-developed by Bridge Housing and the Institute on Aging.
The overall replanning of the urban hospital campus re-envisions the main entry and reestablishes the central quadrangle green space from the historic Highland Hospital Campus.
As the largest construction program ever undertaken by the County of Alameda, the project comprised:
a three-story, 80,000-square-foot Highland Care Pavilion, LEED Gold;
a nine-story, 318,000-square-foot Acute Care Tower and Central Utility Plant, LEED Gold; and,
a Link Building with a 1+ acre Courtyard, Bay Friendly Landscape certified.
Perched high on a hill, the landscape for the existing house was fully gutted to create a new modern look. This project features an entry drive and courtyard. Preserving an existing majestic oak tree was vital. The design also incorporate a new pool and spa with an automatic cover, guest courtyard, and half basketball court at the garage entry. The many landscape areas thoughtfully terrace around the house -- stepping with the natural slope of the hillside.
