The University of Central Arkansas wanted a retirement home for their professors, faculty and staff. A facility located on the campus would allow the residents to remain active in university programs, events, performances, etc.
Jackson Brown Palculict Architects was chosen to design the new homes. A beautiful dining room was a key element, exercise rooms, meeting room, beauty and barber shops were all designed for the occupants. An outdoor roof garden was designed where plantings by individuals could occur or the opportunity to relax outdoor in the sunlight. A viewing balcony was designed to watch nearby ball games and a quiet outdoor covered reading area was designed and is utilized nearly all months in Arkansas. The UCA Independent Living Center (College Square) has been a tremendous success for all.
