New Hospice Facility Features Residential Finishes, High-End Design Elements
LINCOLN, Mass.– Windover Construction has completed the Care Dimensions Hospice House in Lincoln, Massachusetts. The 29,127-square-foot inpatient hospice facility was designed with the patient in mind, providing the medical care they need in a comfortable, home-like environment. The 18-bed facility offers patients and their families skilled medical care, comfort, emotional and spiritual support.
The commercial project was built with residential finishes, featuring 75,000 hand-dipped red cedar shingles and giant custom-glass walls overlooking the Cambridge Reservoir for a tranquil experience. Located on 12 acres of land on the Waltham line, the property offers extensive gardens, walkways and masonry walls repurposed from ledge excavated at the site.
Inside are high-end design elements including floor-to-ceiling millwork, stone floors, fireplaces, art installations and accents such as built-in window benches for the comfort of visitors. To add to the aesthetic quality of the interior, Windover coordinated with SV Design, Siemasko + Verbridge, the deCordova Museum and local artists to incorporate fine artwork into the construction. The interior also features a contemplation room, children’s rooms, chapel and comfortable kitchen/dining spaces. Each patient room includes a sofa bed so family members can stay overnight; 10 rooms also include a garden patio.
Windover managed both preconstruction and construction and worked alongside EGA Architects and SV Design, Siemasko + Verbridge, who designed the interiors.
The new facility is one of six inpatient hospice houses in the Commonwealth, including Care Dimensions’ Kaplan Family Hospice House in Danvers.
