A new building is being constructed that will house a new 240-bed addition in the California Veteran Home, Skilled Nursing Facility and Memory Care project set for Yountville, CA. The project’s design was inspired by the veterans, the program, and the place. The facility is modeled around home environments with personal bedrooms designed for veteran care. Common areas provide a living room feel with natural lighting and views while multiple outdoor terraces are accessible throughout. Circular paths to designed “neighborhoods” helps members find their way around easily and a centralized elevator simplifies navigation. The project will include features such as enhanced HVAC systems, radiant floor heating, displacement air cooling, circadian lighting, touches plumbing fixtures, outdoor terraces, an outdoor physical therapy area, and COVID-19 prevention strategies. Sustainable features will also be included such as mass timber, advanced daylighting strategies, and a high-performance mechanical system and energy envelope.
Rudolph and Sletten is leading the design-build effort as the general contractor and CannonDesign is the architect and interior design firm for the project.
