Durham, NC New Construction Size: 569 SF Construction Cost: $500,000
Carolina House is a residential facility dedicated to providing quality care for the treatment of eating disorders and accompanying issues, such as anxiety and depression. Clients at the Durham campus live in a home-like environment where they can get away from day-to-day stressors and, through a treatment approach that encourages self-exploration, replace self-destructive behaviors with a healthy, new way of living.
Nestled not just among the trees, but actually in one, the recently completed "treehouse" provides the quintessential setting for clients' self-exploration. The treehouse hosts a variety of programs, from yoga to tai chi, designed to help patients integrate mind and body with the ultimate goal of self-acceptance. The 569-square foot healing space includes a large yoga studio plus a separate therapy room. A serpentine entry ramp meanders through the woods in a gradual, ADA-compliant ascent to the yoga studio. Almost entirely constructed of wood, the treehouse is perfectly suited to its environment.
Construction is nearly complete on the new 57,000 square-foot Ferrell Hospital in Eldorado, Illinois. It's a happy ending for what could have been "the end."Read More
