Friendship Village of South Hills, a Lifespace Community

Upper St. Clair, PA, USA

A reimagined life plan community offers the opportunity for people to age healthfully.

To support Friendship Village’s goal of creating non-institutional spaces for aging adults, Perkins Eastman designed a multi-phase plan for improvements at the South Hills campus. The development includes assisted living and assisted living memory support apartments as well as a new health center, all based on a residential household model. In response to market demands, the team also designed larger independent living apartments. An enclosed courtyard forms the heart of the new neighborhood plan, providing an outdoor connection for all residents along with indoor common areas, which are filled with natural light promoting wellness and social connection.
