SENIOR LIVING AND CARE FACILITIES

EL CERRITO ROYALE

LOCATION: El Cerrito, CA

OWNER: Berg Assisted Living

 
Built on infill land adjacent to the BART line, this publicly subsidized 130 unit congregate care project includes a library, chapel, salon, dining hall, private dining room, lounge, snack bar and recreation facility, all surrounded by terraces and gardens with 51 units reserved for low income seniors.

The project design is broken up into many facets in order to reduce the scale and make the project feel more like a home to the residents. The design articulation includes many architectural elements intended to evoke the nearby San Francisco Bay vernacular including a variety of gables, window bays and pitched roofs, tied together with an exterior palate of white-washed cedar and brick cladding.
