Congratulations to the 2015 Senior Living by Design Winners
Senior living design is never static; resident preferences are constantly evolving. But through the competition’s four years, foundational themes appear, including safe and engaging spaces for contemplating and gathering, smart spaces enabling staff to offer superior service, and destination spaces such as fitness centers, libraries, or dining rooms that provide purposeful living.
Twenty-nine architects and design firms shared their projects, and this year Argentum invited judges from a wide variety of senior living disciplines, such as an executive director and a resident care vice president, as well as architects, to offer their unique perspectives on what makes dynamic, functional design.
Judges ranked the community submissions on the uniqueness of the design, the strategic vision and goals at the heart of the design project, the functionality of the design, the design aesthetic, and last but not least, the positive impact this design is making for the residents, families, and staff. The 11 judges selected five senior living residences as recipients of the 2015 Senior Living by Design Award:
Argentum’s magazine, Senior Living Executive, is published six times per year and circulated to approximately 20,000 executives serving senior living. Read the complete Senior Living by Design Awards coverage at www.alfapublications.org.
Senior Living by Design Competition Background Information
About the Senior Living by Design Competition
Each year, the annual design competition celebrates architects, design firms and senior living providers that achieve innovative architecture and design in senior living communities.
Senior living design is never static. Tastes change, design trends evolve over time. As generations shift, resident desires evolve too, with each iteration reflecting a new design aesthetic.
Architects and communities are invited to share their design innovations celebrating an active lifestyle through walkable environments that eliminate corridors, provide safe and engaging spaces for residents and families to gather, charming lighting features customizable to resident needs, rounded edges that improve safety and create a less clinical environment, and efficient and purposeful spaces that allow employees the optimal experience to best serve seniors.
Before starting the online application, please prepare your answers to the following questions. Please make sure all submission information is in print ready format (spell-checked, professional, and thorough) as Argentum will display it for public review.
Judging and Prizes:
Winning projects will be announced and featured in the November/December issue of Senior Living Executive magazine and announced to national media. Winning projects also will receive an award, promotion in Argentum Update newsletter and extra copies of the November/December magazine.
