Hover Senior Living Community celebrated the grand opening of four Green House Homes in Longmont, CO. SWBR worked closely with Hover, The Green House Project®, and the design team to bring skilled nursing to the Hover campus. The new skilled nursing services compliment Hover’s existing affordable Independent and Assisted Living opportunities and embrace their mission to empower seniors to live the life they choose by offering innovative, affordable, and dignified choices in housing and services.
Twelve elders will live in each home and will have their own private bedrooms and full bathrooms. The open living area, kitchen, and dining areas are well connected to the outdoor spaces of the campus and support the core values of The Green House Project; Real Home, Meaningful Life, and Empowered Staff.
At the event, Susan Ryan, Senior Director of The Green House Project, remarked that the new homes are “…the best we’ve seen.”
A beautiful courtyard is formed by the homes, offering opportunities for dining, relaxation, therapy and neighborhood gatherings. The exteriors blend with the Tudor style architecture present on the site and the adjacent historic Hover Mansion. Inside the finishes and materials are warm and natural and characteristically Colorado.
Dr. Bill Thomas, founder of The Eden Alternative, in speaking to the attention to detail observed that these homes, “… are the pinnacle of the craft.”
SWBR, an Eden Alternative Value Added Partner, has long been at the forefront of skilled nursing design, including the nation’s first Community Based Green House homes in Penfield,
Rob Simonetti, AIA and Steve Peet, AIA were honored to be present for the celebration and congratulate the Hover community and leadership for their strong vision and this incredible accomplishment. “We are proud to have helped bring these beautiful new homes to the Hover campus,” said Simonetti.
