Our client brought ADCI a vision of a community where their clients could grow as they age and rely upon in times of need. ADCI adopted this worthy concept and together with our client conceived the Oak Park Place Independent Living Facility, which offers a full range of services including Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care to residents, so they can remain within their own community as they require more attention.
Nestled into the natural terrain with a view of the Baraboo bluffs, the building is designed to interact with its surroundings with an entry water feature that provides a park like progression to the Market Place Commons. Close attention was also paid to scale, texture and detail to create a warm and personal neighborhood community.
Of course, the vision can't be realized unless the operational considerations are properly accounted for in the design. This was achieved through an efficient layout that maintains the neighborhood ambience, yet reduces staffing requirements and the long routes often associated with buildings of this scale.
Since the original building was completed in 2008, the owners have tasked ADCI with designing multiple additions.
