Resurrection Life Center
Location: Chicago, Illinois
Schematic Design & Design Development
Resurrection Life Center provides a wide range of comprehensive skilled nursing services and rehabilitation programs to residents in need of long-term and short-term stays. Designed in 1997, years before Therapeutic Gardening and Restorative Design were catch phrases, the design imperatives defined exterior spaces for residents and caregivers to spend time away from the atmosphere of the skilled nursing environment. A secure courtyard off the specialty unit for dementia and AlzheimerĂ˘€™s residents, an interior courtyard with therapeutic gardening opportunities and a patio dedicated specifically to staff provide spaces for the enjoyment of the sights, fragrances, textures and sounds of the outdoors.
