Residence by Rennes: Creating Homelike Environments

Residence by Rennes Celebrates the ribbon cutting of their new CBRF

Elevating Care Through Design

On a sunny afternoon, PRA joined staff members, City of De Pere Mayor Mike Walsh, City of Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt, the Greater Green Bay Chamber ambassadors, and members of the community to celebrate the completion of the new facility, Residence by Rennes in De Pere, WI. The Assisted Living and Memory Care facility contains 24 units and represents the first of its type for the Rennes Group. After working with the Rennes Group for over 15 years on numerous projects across their various campuses, it was an honor to design this beautiful new facility to assist them in providing continued excellent care for all their residents.

Community Based Residential Facilities like Residence by Rennes represent a growing trend in Assisted Living facilities to provide care in a home-like environment. The facility consists of two 12-unit households, each organized around a courtyard. Each household has a communal living and dining space filled with light from the courtyards.

In addition to the new CBRF, two new entrance canopy additions, five additional RCAC units, and a therapy gym addition have been added to the campus. These additions provide additional amenities and enhanced design for current residents of the Rennes De Pere campus. These projects work together with the various buildings PRA has designed for the campus over the years to create a cohesive and welcoming environment for residents and guests.
