The NorCal Design for Aging Committee tours the Center for Elders’ Independence, the premier provider of The Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). The San Leandro center was designed by Kava Massih Architects.
Center for Elders’ Independence has been serving seniors since 1992. They are a premier provider of PACE, which is the nation’s only integrated acute and long-term care program for low income frail seniors. Center for Elders’ Independence (CEI) provides high quality, affordable, integrated health care services, which promote autonomy and quality of life for seniors, while keeping them in the community and living at home. CEI provides transportation from participants homes to the Center.
CEI selected a 15,660 square feet existing commercial office building in San Leandro for this unique senior adult day activity center and clinic. We worked with a steering committee on the architectural programming to insure the design respected participant’s dignity while providing enough stimulus and activities.
The orientation of the building takes advantage of natural daylight and large windows provide views of the outdoors. The dining, lounge and activity spaces are oriented to views of the courtyard. Nature elements are incorporated are the interior design for improved health and well-being of both participants and staff.
The design is inviting and comfortable, encouraging participant’s engagement socially and through activities. The center provides a large lounge and multiple activity rooms plus a large dining and a serving kitchen. Also included are spaces for rehabilitation services and support.The clinic is set up for four providers with six exam rooms and is accessible from the outside through an internal passageway. The clinic was designed to OSHPD 3 requirements.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Site Information Modeling (SIM) applications provide us with the necessary tools to carry out well-designed and well-planned projects that save both time and money. These same BIM and SIM tools can also be used to help make informed decisions and create responsible, sustainable designs. This presentation will look at case studies of both architecture and landscape architecture projects that utilized intelligent BIM objects and tools to achieve low-impact, sustainable designs.

Enjoy a summer morning in the heart of the East Bay! Join us at City Slicker Urban Farms & Park to learn about how an industrial site was transformed into a neighborhood gathering place through the efforts of many, including tour leaders Lowney Architects.
Since their grassroots beginnings in 2001, City Slicker Farms has been in the vanguard of the 21st-century urban farming and food justice movement, offering skills training, community building and a commitment to social, economic and racial justice in the heart of the city.
Besides the farm, the project features community gathering space, space for nutrition demos, an orchard, playground and raised community garden beds for 28 families. Site-built structures include the main building which houses an office and restrooms, covered and open-air farm stands and a demonstration zone. The chicken coops and front gate result from student-involved design. The coop, designed and built by CCA students, is an innovative approach to a traditional simple building.
The mission of City Slicker Farms is to empower West Oakland community members to meet the immediate and basic need for healthy fresh food, free of chemicals, for themselves and their families by creating high-yield urban farms and backyard gardens.

Join AIA East Bay for a tour of an educational center that embodies the future of learning. Designed by Ratcliff to support the De La Salle High School’s changing program and need for future expansion, the new STREAM (Science, Technology, Robotics, Engineering, Art and Math) Innovation Center is a fascinating educational environment.
The 39,000 sf Center supports and enhances the interdisciplinary interaction of the Science, Technology, Robotics, Engineering, Art and Math departments. Although each classroom is specifically designed for its program, the project creates spaces both inside and out that provide blended, collaborative project opportunities. These physical relationships encourage synergies between different disciplines with opportunities for sharing space, tools, equipment—and most importantly, ideas. Interactive spaces also support the faculty, with collocated department offices and conference rooms adjacent to teaching spaces, where faculty can share ideas and engage with students.
The Center provides a contemporary interpretation of the existing campus brick vernacular by introducing metal panel and operable sunshades in its design expression. The building design is also a learning tool for students that highlights sustainable strategies, such as exposed thermal mass and radiant conditioning, and operable sunshades that track the sun over the course of the day.
POSTPONED. Please email email@example.com to receive notification of the new date.
Free; open to all in the A/E/C community.
For 2016 we’re looking at what is interesting to you–the A/E/C community. It could be parametric design or musical roads. A new type of dining experience or the 2016 Tesla designs.
