Eddy Village Green
Cohoes, New York

The Eddy Village Green, an eighteen-building campus, provides its regional community with a new skilled nursing facility model based on the national “Green House” concept and was the first of its kind constructed in the state of New York. This concept creates small groups of elders and staff that focus on living communally in a residential environment.

This was accomplished by designing sixteen separate 8,600 square foot 12-bed “houses.” Within each house every resident is provided with a private bedroom and bathroom and shares common space with other residents. These common spaces include a Living Room, Den, Dining Room, Kitchen, Spa, Porch, and Patio opening onto a fenced-in yard which residents have access to at all times.

architecture+ worked together with the Owner and the New York State Department of Health throughout the design process and was able to successfully procure a Certificate of Need for the new skilled nursing facility model.

architecture+ was commissioned by The Eddy to design and oversee construction of this $30 million dollar multi-phased project. Construction took place over a three-year period and was Owner occupied during all phases of the project. The scope of work included hazardous material abatement, demolition, renovations, and temporary construction as well as new construction.

architecture+ was further commissioned to provide comprehensive interior design services for all of the sixteen houses. Four interior themes were established to guide the finishes selections, furniture, and accessories. The residents have the opportunity to choose a home with a Shaker, Art Deco, Traditional, or Adirondack theme.

This facility has been designated as a Best Nursing Home by the U.S. News & World Report and received the highest possible five-star rating.

“architecture+ embraced our vision from the beginning - to design a Home for the elders living in our current nursing home. Our homes are warm, comfortable, and beautiful, and we are very grateful.”
