Toward the goal of patient comfort, buildings within the complex feature garden atriums and brick fireplaces. Amber-tinted windows soften the light entering the rooms. Interior ceilings slope upward, opening up the interior space.
Green was a disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright. In keeping with Wright’s principle of organic architecture, look for the thoughtful integration of landscaping into the overall complex design. In addition, note the use (and positioning) of custom lampposts, lining the curved driveway.
