ARCA Design

Carolina Village, Hendersonville, NC

Carolina Village is a non-profit retirement community with continuing care working toward fulfilling a long range masterplan for its facilities.  This project is part of a new “Mainstreet” concept, which strives to provide an active, social environment for the residents by applying the design principles of a small town center. The project includes the renovation of an existing building of approximately 21,000 SF, along with the addition of approximately 3,000 SF. The new “Mainstreet” will include: a Bistro/Sports Bar with Lounge, Wellness and Exercise rooms, two Classrooms, a Post Office, Beauty/Barber Shop and a Pharmacy/Market.  The addition will also be allocated for a future Health Clinic.  The new addition also houses an 800 SF public activity pool and a 200 SF therapy spa.
The Mainstreet concept is intended to respond to a new wave of clientele, retiring baby-boomers who demand a different kind of lifestyle than retirement communities traditionally provide.
