Victory Oaks at St. Camillus provides its low income senior residents with an affordable, attractive housing option that enhances its existing campus. Situated between St. Camillus Church and St. Francis International School, the building is built in an urban infill location, taking advantage of under-utilized land to provide the community with much-needed affordable senior housing.
With the Church and the School adjacent to the new residence, intergenerational activities between these three entities flourish. Holiday caroling with the students and game nights with the Girl Scouts allow Victory Oaks residents to feel connected to their broader community.
The building enhances the existing campus through its bold, sweeping roof units that reduce its height and blend with the surrounding religious architecture. Victory Oaks offers residents generous community spaces, including an arts and crafts room, a fitness center, a library with computers, a multipurpose community room and an outdoor patio.
