Ovation Sienna

For a company that made its name in skilled nursing, Avamere sought to supplement that expertise with a new wave of luxury, resort-styled “micro CCRCs” branded as Ovation by Avamere. As the first of these communities, Ovation Sienna Hills is setting the standard for sophisticated living that offers a wide array of activities and services.

Designed as a campus with complementary buildings, a grand boulevard separates the 150-unit Independent Living building from the 90-unit Assisted Living/60-unit Memory Care building. The buildings were designed in a contemporary desert resort style with use of stone, stucco, and wood timbering in reference to the area.
