Seward Mountain Haven residential facility is based on the “Green House Project” program and design philosophies that treat long term care facilities as the residents’ “home,” a place designed and managed to maximize the quality of life.
The program consists of four Residential Housing Units accommodating 10 residents each and a Central Commons Building consisting of General Stores, Delivery, Housekeeping, Laundry Services, Maintenance, Administration, Chapel, Conference/Training, and Therapy. The residential units are designed with ten individual rooms with private baths clustered around a “great room” that has a fireplace, a large group dining table, and a kitchen that is accessible to residents. The “houses” all have garden plazas oriented to maximize solar access and to provide views.
