Construction has been completed on the $62 million expansion and renovation of the 230,000 square foot, 306 bed Cabrini of Westchester Nursing Home The project was led by partners Lloyd J. Landow AIA, NCARB and Marc J. Landow AIA, NCARB. Overlooking the Hudson River in Dobbs Ferry, New York, Cabrini features a homelike environment with state-of-the-art nursing units designed on the principal of "person centered care", involving the residents, as well their families and staff, in all aspects of their lives. Neighborhoods in the original buildings feature all newly converted private rooms. The new buildings contain all bi-axial double rooms, affording residents companionship as well as privacy when desired. The project is designed on a hotel model with numerous lounges having river views, dining rooms that are light and airy, and individualized food service from country kitchens for an informal dining experience. An extensive physical and occupational therapy department has been created on the main level adjacent to a new garden, where therapy can be provided outdoors in warm weather. The convent has been relocated to a more private area of the building and a new chapel with stained glass windows has been designed off the lobby as a part of a pedestrian street which also includes a new coffee shop and gift shop. Partner Robin Landow Levitin AIA LEED AP designed the interiors. The site has been reconfigured with parking for almost 200 cars. A pair of new two story extensions were added to the original 1960's building and a three story extension was added to the 1980 wing, creating an enclosed Alzheimer's garden where residents with cognitive impairment can wander safely under the unobtrusive supervision of the staff. The new building is constructed of textured and exposed aggregate precast concrete, enabling the expansion to be contextual with the existing structures and contributing to the project being brought in on time and under budget.
