Shorefront Jewish Geriatric Center
This is a $61 million campus we designed in Coney Island which contains a 360 bed nursing home and a 13 story, 116 unit assistive living facility. The nursing home’s "neighborhood" design concept allows Metropolitan Jewish Health System to tailor its programs and the level of care to meet the current needs of the community. Each "neighborhood", which is comprised of 18 residents, can serve a target population which can change at any time. Each floor is made up of four "neighborhoods" which are divided into two nursing units. Each unit has carpeting on the floor, warm colors, and amenities that are different from a traditional nursing unit, conveying the feeling of non-institutional design.
Upon completion, the existing nursing home on the site was demolished to make way for a 13 story, 117 unit assistive living facility which we designed.
