Samaritan Village is a private not-for-profit corporation that provides treatment for drug and alcohol abuse. For many years, they operated their program in former resort buildings. They wanted an innovative facility but could only commit minimal resources to the project. Only one of the existing buildings could be renovated. As a result, our design included a complex phasing plan that allowed the facility to provide uninterrupted services to their 228 clients while new buildings were being constructed.
architecture+ worked collaboratively with Samaritan Village, OASAS, and DASNY to manage the project budget during the design and construction process. Using creative solutions, we designed a new $18.2 million integrated campus community that not only matched their budget but matched their vision for providing an innovative program. The project includes administrative and program space, recreation and dining facilities, roadways, parking, landscaping and site utilities.
We also designed a new $2.9 million, 7,000 square foot recreational building on the new campus including a gymnasium, fitness center, and locker rooms.
"Without your vision and dutiful commitment in constructing these buildings, none of this would have been possible. We thank you!"
