Snyder Architects* was retained by the Durham Region to redevelop the Hillsdale site in Oshawa into Estates & Terraces. An extensive site selection process was employed by the Region to create an LTC Campus and New Terraces in a combined 500 bed flagship for long term and community care within the park. Two of the RHA focused on support for dementia care and featured private rooms with small RHA and healing gardens.
The design maximizes the views of the surrounding park and incorporate 25 bed RHAs with common amenities on the ground floor. Communal spaces such as the bar/café, a solarium, outdoor terraces and auditorium are located on the ground floor with views of the surrounding park. The project involved the demolition of two buildings and the re-location of residents.
* This project was started under the firm’s former name of Mekinda Snyder Partnership.
