Creating Active Environments to Call Home

Welcome to a new way of thinking about at senior living. Whether replacing, updating, or expanding a facility, bland and institutional environments are a thing of the past. Imagine new and smarter approaches, where wellness is encouraged, the amenities reflect the lifestyle of a connected population, and the atmosphere conveys a resort-like experience. Many of life’s emotional and meaningful events will take place in a senior living setting and the built environment must support this human experience. We consider not only the residents and their families, but also the support staff in providing a successful design for a strong, viable community.

According to the Urban Land Institute’s Emerging Trends in Real Estate® Americas, 37 percent of millennials ultimately prefer city living.
