Duplex Senior Housing
SAGE was engaged by the owner to continue the design development for 8 independent senior duplex houses after the initial site entitlements had been partially resolved. Located adjacent to the Spiritwood assisted living manor, the duplex cottages are nestled together in the wooded setting along a village lane. Cottages are each 1,200 SF including attached garage.
The design by the previous designer had traditional hipped roofs. However, each duplex was relatively narrow and long, causing the attics to be 14 feet high, higher than the actual single-floor living area. SAGE adjusted the floor plans and roof design to a create a contemporary village appearance that also saved the costs of the huge attic trusses. The shed roofs designed by SAGE, while lower, provide vaulted interior spaces to be enjoyed by the residents.
Cottages have these amenities:
- Fireplace and high sloped ceiling
- Stone work from local quarries andabundant wood trim
- Clerestory skylights in living room, master bedroom and kitchen
- Open plan connecting living, dining and kitchen
- Full kitchen and attached garage
- Master bedroom with garden patio
