This senior living project, is a resident-directed care remodel from Simonson & Associates Architects. A Hearth Room will replace the activities of the centralized nursing station. The reclaimed space will give residents a flexible space for entertaining, overflow seating and a more pleasant focal point. The design brings focus of the community from the nursing function to the residents and their daily routines. The nursing station has been reduced in size and located in less conspicuous locations.
