LIFE at Lourdes Westampton Westampton, New Jersey

Lourdes Health System selected K&A to provide architectural and interior design services for the renovation and interior fit-out of an existing industrial building in Westampton, New Jersey. Designed specifically to host a variety of health, wellness, recreational, nutritional and social activities offered by LIFE at Lourdes, this new 19,000 square foot PACE Center (Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) would be the organization’s second center in the southern New Jersey area serving frail seniors.

The design for the new center included a new exterior canopy at the main entrance, providing a convenient covered drop-off for seniors and visitors. All the spaces within the new LIFE at Lourdes at Westampton are contained on a single level—creating an interior program that is fully wheelchair-accessible, and which allows both seniors and staff to easily access all areas. Four spacious dayrooms positioned along the south-facing wall take advantage of the natural daylighting the site has to offer. And a secured and private landscaped garden patio is directly accessible from each dayroom, providing an external space for social activities and recreation when the weather is nice.
