Bridge Meadows

Carleton Hart Architecture was commissioned to assist in the creation of this inter-generational housing and community development that provides homes for foster youth, their adoptive parents, and seniors. Bridge Meadows developed this intentional inter-generational community model based on a similar community, Generations of Hope, in Illinois. By bringing families of children adopted out of foster care together with senior residents, young families benefit from support of elders while the community spirit of the development counteracts isolation often experienced by seniors in traditional housing types.

Named after its founding organization, Bridge Meadows includes eight 2,500 square foot single-family, four-bedroom homes; 32 two-bedroom senior apartments; and a 3,000 square foot community center for all residents.
