THE GREEN HOUSE
PROTOTYPE SKILLED NURSING FACILTIY FOR THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA
MT. SAN ANTONIO GARDENS
The “Green House©” concept signifies a nurturing environment for the elderly. This 7,000 SF skilled nursing facility is a prototype for the State of California and will help to de-institutionalize skilled nursing facilities in the State. Rather than the typical institutional facility, the “Green House©” concept is based on a family-like residence for 10 people. The floor plan utilizes a great room concept with open kitchen and dining alcoves. Each resident has their own bedroom. The buildings are all wood in an Arts & Crafts-inspired style with a contemporary twist. This project has been visited by hundreds of senior care executives and facility management staff from around the country to learn about the Green House Concept.
This is a sustainable project that was awarded LEED Silver Certification Rating. The project, which took two years to approve through the Office of Statewide Health Planning & Development, will de-institutionalize skilled nursing in the State of California.
