Monarch Landing

Naperville, Illinois
Perkins Eastman was hired by Senior Care Development in 2011 to transform its 15-acre independent living campus in Naperville into a full-service life plan community (LPC). The Springs at Monarch Landing is a new 94,000-square-foot health and rehabilitation center, comprising a total of 124 new residences, including 48 devoted to short-term rehabilitation, 48 for skilled nursing, and 28 for assisted living memory support.

The campus is now equipped to accommodate and care for seniors in need of memory care, skilled nursing, and short-term rehab care, as well as those residing within its independent living community. Designed on a “person-centered” household model, apartments are arranged around various common areas and public spaces that evoke a feeling of home and security. The Springs features two distinct households on each floor—each designed so that residents are within steps of its open, intimately scaled dining, living, and activity spaces.

Integrating the skilled care and assisted living components is the new 14,000-square-foot Town Center, a single-story, high-volume wood-frame structure that houses the main lobby, administrative offices, a new production kitchen, café, multipurpose room, physical therapy suite, and spa/salon, as well as various mechanical, loading, and service functions. The Town Center also performs the key function of connecting The Springs with Monarch Landing’s existing independent living buildings and its parking garage via an enclosed glass link corridor.
