Lancaster Manor Additions and Renovations, Lincoln, NE

Continuing Care Retirement Communities

This project was designed in phases, as construction was to be completed while the facility was in full operation.

Phase I was primarily interior design changes and included mostly cosmetic changes to the main core corridors and lounges, wing corridors, dining rooms, nurses’ stations and Wing 3 room interiors.

Phase 2 included the additions and remodeling of the Entry, Administrative and Therapy Areas and remodeling the northeast section of the facility, including designing the relocation of the current entry/drop off drive, designing a drive-under drop-off canopy, an entrance location with a vestibule, expanded reception, waiting and living areas, a new combination training/theatre with a storage area and ticket booth, a new admissions area and new single-use public toilets.

Our design also provided an entrance vestibule to the interior courtyard, an enclosed smokers’ area in a new gazebo at the southeast corner of the complex, redesign of the office area with new offices, a restroom, conference rooms, a work room and reception areas. The new design included a new library/computer room, bistro, gift shop, private dining room, a lounge with a bar, and an expanded therapy area with a spa tub and specialty therapy functions. The second level above the bistro space serves as an outdoor deck for Wing 5. A new circulation area with an open, circular, central ‘node’ to tie the existing main corridors together was also designed.
