Five senior living communities from across the nation were recognized as winners of Argentum’s fifth annual Senior Living by Design Awards, published in the November/December issue of Senior Living Executive magazine.
Simple designs, natural light and clear views of the majestic outdoors dominated this year’s award winners. Communities are increasingly looking for ways to bring the outdoors inside and take residents closer to nature, whether it’s providing virtual stargazing or encouraging residents to harvest their own herbs and vegetables.
A couple of this year’s winners found unique ways to deal with design challenges while renovating existing properties, while another 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.
