abstract

  • The Genesis Rehabilitation Center will aim to provide a design that benefits the well-being of the patient and staff, while promoting recovery and allowing those that inhabit the space to feel good while doing so. This project will provide 140,000 square feet of rehabilitation space and supportive housing. The rehabilitation and supportive housing buildings were placed strategically on site for several reasons. The main reason was to preserve the existing site elements, such as the baseball diamond and tennis courts. This will create an opportunity to expand these existing site elements in order to create an environment that everyone in the area will be able to occupy. The rehabilitation building was placed where the existing cul de sac was located in order to create a direct covered drop-off area for the police department that leads directly into the sobering department. South of the building will be a service road that connects to a garage in either building for waste management or deliveries. In addition, there will be space to create additional parking spaces for the staff, patients, family members, and park goers of the Genesis Rehabilitation Center.
