The Benedictine Living Community

St. Peter, MN | Housing

Overview

The Benedictine Living Community’s three-building complex provides comfortable senior living and a connection to the local St. Peter hospital.


Opportunity

Occupying an obsolete former hospital building, The Benedictine Living Community determined that a new facility would be more cost-effective than expanding and renovating the existing one.

Solution

ISG designed The Benedictine Living Community’s new 64,000 sq. ft. long-term care facility after relocating from its previous space. The entry to the building has a covered canopy, and the lobby boasts a beautiful two-story atrium that is filled with natural light from clerestory windows at the top of the space. Comfortable lounges and conversation areas are provided for residents, as well as a library and dining area that is also utilized for family gatherings and fellowship. The exterior siding is brightly finished with a limestone base that complements the prairie-style details of the building. The project was designed as three buildings—one is the main entry with common amenities and services and is linked to the two main care center buildings. The entire complex is also connected to the main hospital in St. Peter, maximizing convenience.
