Renovation of senior living community enhances tranquil residential life
Nauset Construction recently completed the renovation of The Gables at Winchester, an independent and assisted living retirement community owned and operated by Five Star Senior Living of Newton, Mass. Designed by architectural firm Levi+Wong Design Associates, the 40,000-sf project includes a stadium-style theater, library, fitness center, and bistro within the Winchester, Mass., campus. The multi-million dollar project was completed in three phases over a 14-month period to minimize disruptions to the residents. A new activity room with a grand main entrance features traditional architectural details with high-end finishes. Residents enjoy landscaped outdoor patios with stone wall seats, blue stone in-lays, and warm exterior lighting.
