Saint Camillus Campus ExpansionWauwatosa, WI
St. Camillus retained PRA to design the expansion of its campus, which consists of a new two-story 72 unit assisted living facility on the northeast corner of the site with a connection to the existing health center.
The new facility features two 24-unit memory care households and one 24-unit household for frail residents. Each household contains a central courtyard surrounded by a large public dining room with a serving kitchen, two living rooms, and a den. A shared CBRF commons space contains additional amenities including a resident chapel, therapy suite and multi-purpose room. Enclosed parking garages are available on the lower level as well as office and back of house functions to service the whole campus.
In addition to the CBRF, the facility contains a four-story 49-unit apartment building for retired priests of the Jesuit Order. The Jesuit Residence commons area contains its own private chapel, lounge, and dining room with operable partitions that can open up to provide one large gathering space. The lowest level of the Jesuit residence is reserved for memory care and has another dining room, living room, and chapel for residents to use. The exterior material pallet and design style of the building will be carried throughout each of the new buildings to create a unified look on the campus.
