Poydras Home’s new model of care, The Green House® Project, necessitates new surroundings for our residents on our campus.
The Poydras Home Board of Trustees selected the architecture and design firm of Eskew Dumez Ripple (EDR) to create a physical space that would enable Poydras Home to fully implement the cultural transformation to The Green House Project model. We broke ground in August of 2021 on two new, three-story buildings linked by a majestic glass atrium that will serve as the entryway for six separate homes, one on each floor. Each home will house a cluster of spacious private bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom, nestled around shared common spaces, including a living room, kitchen, dining room, porches and balconies.
One of the most inclusive transformations to the heart of Poydras Home will be the development of a Center for Healthy Living. EDR has designed a complete renovation of our Historic House with amenities shared by all. Poydras Home’s new Center for Healthy Living is where our residents will thrive. This new space will house a therapy gym, a yoga studio, a library, a meditative space, an expanded salon and spa, and a multipurpose space for programming and education will create an atmosphere in which all the residents of Poydras Home can nurture their passions.
The addition of two, new, three-story buildings to our scenic, three-acre campus leads Poydras Home forward to do what it does best – provide the highest possible quality of care and innovative programming that allow residents to live elevated lives within a beautiful, historic setting.
The Philanthropy Department presents 40+ exterior and interior naming opportunities for gifts that will keep on giving. From beautiful gardens and tree groves, inviting porch and patio settings, including the historic Jefferson Avenue porch, overlooking a fire pit patio, to life inspiring interior spaces, residents will have elevated experiences through artful living and learning, worthy wellness, meaningful life, a “real” home environment, and aging in place with spirit and grace.
Philanthropy looks forward to discovering a gift that is especially meaningful to you, your loved one, your family, or the organizations you serve.
