The hamlet of Armonk maintains a high standard within its community for design. For H2M, the standards by which they were held were no different.
Situated within an office park, where the building design predated the Regan Administration and did not relate to the surrounding community, the Bristal at Armonk stands out among the rest. Located at the intersection of Routes 22 and 684, the 141-bed, 123,277 square foot building has a strong visual presence thanks to its Romanesque architectural style.
Overcoming Armonk’s high design standards was not the only obstacle H2M overcame. The hamlet, located in Westchester County, had a higher-than-normal water table. As a result, no cellar could be constructed, bringing all service areas to grade. To maximize this building’s potential, H2M designed it in an “X”-shape, enabling there to be virtually no inside building corners without windows. Additionally, this facility brought a concept to the table that is not only new to Bristal, but is relatively new to assisted living homes: a spa amenity that resembles that of a luxury hotel.
