We create environments for seniors that encourage the human spirit to grow and ďŹ‚ourishâ€”improving the quality of life and sense of community for residents. Our architectural expertise ranges from master planning, new construction, renovations, sustainable design, and all other aspects of the built environment. We have successfully completed more than 170 projects in 30 states for a variety of senior living environments including assisted living, independent living, and continuing care retirement communities (CCRC), as well as long-term care and skilled nursing facilities. When designing these environments, we believe a home is more than brick and mortar. It is the essence of the individual resident interacting with people and friends, enjoying life in a safe familiar environment. We are committed to improving the quality of life for residents of any age by creating environments and communities in which to thrive.
Integrating “wellness” into senior living communities is an important aspect of both community repositioning and new community development. Wellness involves the whole person, and it centers around six dimensions: social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, vocational, and physical. It’s more than state-of-the-art gyms and ﬁtness classes; communities strive to be a center of well-being. Holistic wellness (or whole person wellness) has proven to reduce health care costs and urgent medical treatment. Part design and part programming, today’s senior living community includes access to outdoors, dining alternatives, social spaces, continuing education, occupational therapy, and spiritual support. The broader deﬁnition of wellness has evolved rapidly, and senior living options have evolved with it.

Today’s senior living residences reﬂect a movement towards hospitality and home-like environments, certainly not the sterile environments that were at one time associated with facilities for seniors. From dining options to common areas, facilities are designed to encourage a sense of activity and destination. The reality is that elderly people don’t want to be in an institution, they want a much more home-like setting. Interiors have moved away from institutional products, and now feature furniture and ﬁnishes more in common with a hotel than a hospital.

01 CASE STUDY
BRIGHTVIEW GREAT FALLS For Brightview at Great Falls, special care was taken to create a design harmonious with the surrounding historic vernacular of Great Falls and natural topography of the site. The 72,000 sf four-story building is set back from the property line with the ﬁnished ﬂoor elevation established six feet below the road, allowing for a softer streetscape. The building’s exterior is comprised of moss green siding, natural stone, white trim and simple gables and hip roof forms in keeping with the character of the neighborhood. The building’s mass was broken up with several one story wings to give a human scale and understated appearance to the façade. Stone chimneys and other elements such as covered porches were designed to give the building the feeling of a single family residence.
