JYL provided design and construction services for this 44 bed extended care and 11 bed assisted living facility in Juneau. The design emphasis was to create a "home" environment and a residential atmosphere for residents. This was achieved through development of four homes, each consisting for eleven to fourteen beds. Each home has at its center a family style living and dining area which opens onto both an interior enclosed court and an exterior patio. The design features bay windows in all resident rooms, a residential scale and turn of the century interior details. The use of skylights and high bay windows in the living and dining areas creates a bright, pleasant loving space. The work was completed as a design build project on a particularly aggressive schedule. Construction was completed in 2001.
