This senior living facility evolved from the client’s longtime vision and dream of opening a facility that satisfies senior citizens who seek a unique living experience. The design challenge was to overcome the preconceived notions associated with the typical traditional interiors seen in senior living facilities. The common areas were specifically designed to promote socialization, relaxation, and engagement with their surroundings through texture, artwork and energetic color.
To bring character and warmth to the common areas, a two-sided stone clad fireplace greets residents and visitors in the light filled two-story reception area. On the other side of the fireplace is the fireside lounge where residents can watch TV, sit by the fireplace, or just relax and enjoy the view out the full wall of glass that overlooks a beautiful garden and pond. Adjacent to the fireside lounge, a stylish coffee bar & kitchen is equipped with modern amenities, and enough space for residents to socialize over a cup of coffee or participate in a cooking class. A family dining room adjacent to the main dining room provides residents with a private space to share meals with their family, or participate in a game of cards with other residents. Residents are so excited to have a place to live that is not your typical senior living facility. It truly was a labor of love for the owner to provide something different and unique.
