Sun City Yokohama is a continuum of care retirement community operated by Health Care Japan Co., Ltd., a leader in Japan’s fast growing senior housing communities. With Perkins Eastman Architects PC, SWA completed the master planning phase of the project and is providing schematic design. The plan consists of two single building “villages” connected by a pavilion-like community building. Each village has 240 independent living units, each with its own community living and dining programs. The west village also contains the 120-bed skilled nursing facility with its own arrival court on the north side of the building. The community building spans a natural draw in the landform that with the east village frames a large meadow that rolls toward a created stream that runs along the top of a steep tree-covered slope that forms the western edge of the space.
