In 2012, Catholic Health was faced with the challenges of upgrading the aging St. Francis of Williamsville Nursing Home facility while providing for the changing needs of both subacute patients and long-term care residents. The scope of work for this multiphase project included refreshing and rebranding the facility through updating finishes, lighting, sprinklers, a new subacute lounge with serving kitchen & dining area, and a renovated state-of-the-art nurse’s station. Kideney Architects collaborated with Catholic Health to create a hospitality-based environment to improve the quality of life for both nursing home patients and residents. Given client requirements for a low-maintenance, slip-resistant flooring material that would safely accommodate mobility equipment, luxury vinyl tile flooring was specified. A warm and calming environment was accomplished by blending Centiva’s wood and stone look, resilient flooring, and Roppe wall base. The organic floor pattern paid homage to the radial nature of the building footprint, while differentiating circulation space from resident lounge spaces. The project was completed in 2013 and continues to provide excellent durability and hospitality to the residents, patients, staff, and visitors.
