Oro Valley Memory Care
Oro Valley, Arizona
Oro Valley Memory Care is at the base of the Santa Catalina Mountains in the Town of Oro Valley, Arizona. The 48-unit, 56 person facility has four “resident neighborhoods” surrounding two generous interior courtyards. The 12-unit neighborhoods each have common dining and living areas. By keeping the group numbers small, a feeling of familiarity is developed for residents and visiting family members.
To reflect the nearby mountain range and the palette of the desert, the building’s exterior uses several warm earth tones for the stucco finish and stone highlights. Metal awnings at windows provide shade as well as play on the elements found in pueblos. Angled walls reinforce the mountain theme and add visual variety.
