In the center of Keene, New Hampshire, an existing historic 34,000 SF mill building was envisioned to be the prime focus of this Independent Living facility. The adaptive re-use of the existing factory building incorporates nearly all the facility’s community space along with loft-like residential units. The historic elements along with the interactive spaces provide the inhabitants with an upgraded level of residential comfort. A four-story 70,000 SF state-of-the-art addition attaches to the mill building and compliments its architecture along with the community in general.
