South Country Village

Location: Medicine Hat, AB

Year: Ongoing

Status: Complete

Type: Senior Living

Client: South Country Village

South Country Village is one of the first facilities in Southern Alberta to provide comprehensive care for an aging population. South Country focuses on the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of its residents, reflecting God’s love and care for all people. ARFAI’s work at South Country Village has been ongoing since 1989. Architectural work has extended from the Garden Estates to the north, to Sunny View to the south, and from the renovations to the Sunnyside Nursing Home to the west, and to the most recent addition, Heritage Heights, on the east perimeter of the site. One of the most interesting endeavors has been the ongoing addition of a second story over 1950’s and 1960’s era buildings which had nominally flat roof construction, prone to leakage and creating ongoing maintenance issues for South Country Village. The second story additions were aesthetically implemented, creating a seamless tie between the new space at the upper level and the pre-existing main floor. The end result was renewed life and vitality for aged facilities. South Country Village has developed Heritage Heights, the newest residential development on the campus, which provides all of the amenities including underground parking and the luxury anticipated by senior’s in today’s retirement environment.
