St Mary’s Care Center

St Mary’s Care Center Renovation 
Madison, Wisconsin
On the Boards: Imagine taking a drab central therapy space in an existing nursing home and transforming it into a coffee shop, gift store and day spa! Picture the ideal space for residents to grab a delicious bakery item, or get their nails done or spend time in the sun with family grilling on the patio. We are proposing a place inside a nursing home that makes you feel comfortable, lets you forget where you are, welcomes healing social connections and truly removes the stigma. Our design is challenging the nursing home status quo! It’s the type of project that makes you ask, ” Why haven’t we been designing nursing homes like this all along?”
