SWBR teamed with Perkins Eastman as design architect, with SWBR as Architect of Record to complete The Highlands at Pittsford Health and Wellness Center, a $4.8 million wellness-focused expansion at 100 Hahnemann Trail in Pittsford.
The centerpiece of the program is a two-story Health and Wellness Center designed to support the Seven Dimensions of Wellness, a holistic concept developed by Dr. Bill Hettler, co-founder of the National Wellness Institute, and endorsed by the International Council of Active Aging.
The expansion includes a swimming and therapy pool complete with an underwater treadmill and whirlpool, a fully-appointed fitness center with changing rooms, a health bar offering nutritious refreshments, a salon, and an auditorium. In addition, The Highlands’ main dining room was relocated and expanded, now overlooking a scenic courtyard with water features. Upgrades were also made to Laurelwood, The Highlands’ assisted living community, to enhance its entranceway and common areas.
“Wellness and its many aspects have long been a part of the forward-thinking Highlands community,” said aid Lloyd Thiess, executive director of The Highlands. . “Our residents, who were deeply involved in the plans for this project, are already embracing the Seven Dimensions concept and are excited about the new ways our community is supporting them in enjoying life.”
