BUILDING DESIGN KNOCKS DOWN WALLS IN SENIOR LIVING


BY LISA RABASCA ROEPE S


IMPLE DESIGNS, NATURAL LIGHT AND CLEAR VIEWS OF THE MAJESTIC OUT- DOORS dominated this year’s Senior Living by Design winners. Communities increasingly are looking for ways to bring the outdoors inside and take residents closer to nature whether it’s providing virtual stargazing or encouraging resi- dents to harvest their own herbs and vegetables to add to their daily menu.


This year’s winners also found unique ways to deal with design challenges while renovating an existing property. Cedarbrook Senior Living in Michigan used the site’s unique topogra- phy to create a unified community and Hillcrest Country Estates in Nebraska used a newly built Rehab Cottage to unify its campus. Meanwhile, The Dogwood Memory Care Neigh- borhood in Connecticut used a 100-year-old oak tree as the central organizing theme of a community addition.


The creation of engaging and unique social settings continues to be an important design element in senior living communities, especially because social interaction is scientifically proven to lead to healthier living. Rose Villa in Oregon is designed to appear like a small town with its amenities that have the look and feel of individually branded businesses. And, as Autumn Leaves of Westover Hills in Texas focuses exclusively on memory care, the community offers opportunities for residents to be social in three enclosed courtyards, a figure-eight design with a completely open pathway and an open kitchen that encour- ages residents to engage with family and friends.


The 21 nominees offer innovative suggestions for renovating existing communities, incor- porating nature and creating engaging spaces that feel like home. Meet the five winners.
