The Washington State Veterans' Home (photo by George White) is a skilled nursing facility commissioned to refocus funds on patient care, to reduce overall expenses, and to offer residents the benefits of a sustainable environment. For the architectural team at NBBJ, quality of life for the residents was a key goal. Next week we'll see how the residents' greater control over their interior environment became integral with other sustainability features that led to a LEED Gold certification for the facility.
