Waggonner & Ball’s award-winning Lambeth House Riverfront Retirement Community was recently featured in an exhibit at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) National Convention in Philadelphia, PA. In November 2015 a Merit Award for the project was bestowed on the firm and accepted by firm Principal Mac Ball and Project Architect David Curtis. Lambeth House will be featured in the Design for Aging Review, 13th Edition, to be published by the AIA in fall 2016.
The Skilled Nursing and Wellness Center, completed in July 2013, provides new residence and community spaces for Lambeth House, a retirement community on the New Orleans riverfront. The linear building takes advantage of views to Audubon Park and the Mississippi River. Private rooms are designed to maximize daylighting while minimizing solar gains. Rooms are organized around central shared amenities such as living and activity rooms. The ground floor Wellness Center features a cafe, chapel, spa, art room, and fitness center. A 75 foot, 3 lane saltwater pool is housed in a separate, one story structure connected to the Center by a meditation garden.
