Van Dyk Assisted Living Community

Project Overview

LAN was hired as the architect and engineer for the design of Van Dyk Assisted Living Community. The 120-bed assisted living facility is situated on a quiet and peaceful five-acre wooded site across the street from a 103 acre park. The facility’s five levels required a stepped placement on a hillside to ensure that no section of the building exceeds three stories in height and each of the five levels have direct access to grade. 

The exterior elevations were designed to complement the existing 200+ year old wood framed Victorian farmhouse, and interior spaces were designed and decorated in a warm home-like atmosphere. 

Three distinct areas are available within the building, including senior apartments, assisted living, and a secure section for residents with advanced memory loss. These areas are like individual neighborhoods that blend seamlessly together as they are arranged around internal courtyards, patios, and common use lounges, activity rooms, and dining areas.  

The facility offers a large multi-purpose room for resident and local community programs. Additional amenities include a hair salon, bistro, library, solarium, private dining room, large assembly room with outside deck, porches, patios, physical fitness room, residential and commercial laundries, and a covered loading dock.
