New York, Riverdale
IBI Group Gruzen Samton was retained by the Hebrew Home for the Aged at Riverdale for the design of a new wing, the Jacob Reingold Pavilion, to replace an aged and obsolete 160-bed building located off-campus. It also helped reduce the population of the adjacent Resnick Pavilion by decreasing the number of semi-private rooms in that building.
The new pavilion is both a successful model for senior housing for the next generation of users, the baby boomers, and a welcoming home for today’s seniors. Having retired from a more active world, both generations desire an exciting environment that provides opportunities for a vital life experience, while preserving privacy and enhancing social interaction and quality of life.
