The Meadows of Napa Valley

Community for Napa’s Seniors

In the heart of California’s wine country, the Meadows at Napa Valley Senior Living Life Plan Community was long overdue to remodel and expand their primary amenity building. Designed to support the active lives of local residents who want to grow old without leaving their community, The Meadows’s new space creates a sophisticated yet relaxed, friendly, and engaged atmosphere. From its new pool and fitness center to its refined dining venues, our expansion for The Meadows brings people together through shared activities and strong connections to their wider Napa community.

The Meadows’s strong ties to Napa’s community, culture, and aesthetic informs our design of the entire expansion, inside and out. The exterior reflects a Spanish revival style with clay tile, a terra cotta roof, and wood on the upper balconies. Inside, warm exposed-wood details and an impressive concierge desk welcomes residents and visitors to what is now a full-service life plan community, with freestanding memory care, assisted living, and 60 new units for independent living. The layout of the building centers around gathering and community. Residents can now choose from three different dining options ranging from a casual bistro to an expansive formal dining room, supported by a full-sized commercial kitchen. Previously seating only 60 people, this remodeled space now entertains 160 in 4,500 sq. ft. and can be used as an event space. An indoor pool and fitness room helps residents exercise and stay healthy together. The reimagined Meadows at Napa Valley begins before residents even enter the building. Since the campus is located in California’s wine country, a vineyard was incorporated into the landscape; here, residents can learn from a local school to make their own wine. Nearby, they can get together on a putting green, toss a bocce ball, or play pickleball on dedicated courts. An outdoor gathering space is perfect for live music, larger courtyard gatherings, or simply relaxing by the fire. By combining our experience in senior housing and renovation work, we were able to manage a complex project that spanned multiple overlapping jurisdictions—with 12-15 different permits, multiple buildings, several contractors, and a need to keep an entire campus up and running the whole time. In essence, we tore off two wings while people were living next door. To prove our project’s success, the residents not only still talked to us afterward, but they were also grateful for our clear and inclusive communication throughout the phased process. We transformed The Meadows into the community everyone here hoped for, and we did so smoothly.
