Serving the elders of the Cheyenne River Sioux Indian Community in Eagle Butte, South Dakota, this skilled nursing and assisted living facility provides a core space for 60 beds, with the planned ability to add another 60 beds. The core spaces include: admissions and orientation, health care, food service, visitation, programs and services, facility support, and facility administration.
The exterior courtyard circle is completed and enhanced by hardscape and landscape elements to conceptually introduce the medicine wheel – symbol of all creation and the cycles of life. Connecting sky to earth, raised lanterns located on the main circulation corridor bring daylight deep within the facility.
