Magnolia Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is an existing 98 bed skilled nursing facility located in Shreveport, Louisiana. Ashe Broussard Weinzettle Architects was asked to design additions and modernizations that would completely rework the existing structure and provide the appearance of a complete new facility. It is the intention of the owner to provide new and improved social and activity spaces, and to increase the number of private room accommodations for residents.
Additions to the existing campus include an arts and crafts area, movie theater, chapel, physical therapy, business offices, and generous private bedroom accommodations. Within the existing building new living room space was created, the dining room was expanded, and a centralized nursing station was relocated to improve the efficiencies in healthcare delivery. The final plan will also include new shaded exterior spaces and extensive landscaping.
