Copper Lake Estates Assisted Living Center
Copper Lake Estates offers independent living and assisted living options to suit its residents’ lifestyles, housed on 32 acres of serene, park-like scenery nestled around a lake. Copper Lake sought to expand their existing structure in order to serve more residents.
When Smith & Pickel was awarded the negotiated project, the goal was to take maximum advantage of the picturesque views out to the beautiful lake. The one-story wood frame center is now designed to house 48 residents in one- and two-bedroom units, with all rooms being ADA compliant. The center has two entries, one walk-up and the other a protected drive through, and both were designed to serve as front doors, welcoming residents and visitors alike into the comfortable lobby and living room.
Natural light streams through large arched clerestory lobby windows above onto the cozy sitting areas below. A two-sided fireplace serves as a focal point in the central living area. Beyond there is an elegant full dining area for residents served by a warming kitchen, while the full kitchen next door performs the bulk of the cooking. A private dining area, chapel and activity room are among the center’s other amenities.
