MonteCedro 1


Altadena, CA

Nestled in the foothills of Altadena, MonteCedro offers residents a new hospitality-focused way of living.

With residential villas, apartment homes, and assisted living and memory support suites that provide older adults with long-term, high-quality service, Perkins Eastman’s design for a new Episcopal Home Communities campus is the first of its kind in the region. Exchanging traditional models of retirement and care-based living for one based on personal exploration and lifelong learning, the team planned a creative living community that includes restaurants, a spa, salon, pool, and movie theater. With early California, Spanish Colonial, and Mediterranean motifs, the design honors the region’s history. The new residence minimizes impact on the environment while connecting those who live with the local community’s business district and social activities all within a short walk from home.
