Transitional housing unit for men
Addiction and Co-Occurring Diagnosis Inpatient Center
Richard Turlington Architects Inc restored what was formerly known as Scavetta House at Silver Hill Hospital in New Canaan CT, and its grounds, to its original splendor by utilizing our holistic healthcare architectural design and interior design. The 1920 8,500 square foot Tudor Revival house required code compliance including local and state healthcare regulations and the State ADA codes in order to open its doors to the all-male population it serves in the “Addiction and Dual Disorders Transitional Living Programs.” Scavetta House is located on Silver Hill Hospitals 42-acre campus and is one of the 15 buildings that sit on the bucolic grounds where Richard Turlington Architects has served as the only architect and interior designer for over a decade. During the renovation and expansion of Scavetta House, Richard Turlington Architects treated the healthcare design and interior design of the project with the intent of treating males only in an approachable and safe environment.
The use of rich wool carpets, deep chestnut leathers, thick cherry wood, bright uplifting blues are just a hint of the overall feel of the building which also includes the exposing and restored wood ceiling columns and beams. This house had been altered throughout the years and was filled with a detritus of many renovations. Richard Turlington Architects was able to remove all of the unnecessary construction, which ultimately allowed for a better flow and function in a completely modernized, comfortable, code compliant environment.
This project was acknowledged by the New Canaan Preservation Alliance with the Trustee's award.
