Residential Living, Memory Care, and Assisted Living Design

Whether you engage us to create an assisted living design for new construction or to reposition and remodel an existing community, we bring a wealth of operational knowledge to the table. This is particularly valuable when an owner or architect is relatively new to the field, because we can identify potential issues in a plan before construction begins. We perform a detailed operational review of your 50% plan, which helps us enhance your original vision as well as identify potentially problematic details.

Renovation and Repositioning

When renovating an existing community, our interior design services always begin with a first impression evaluation, both from our perspective and that of potential residents and their families. By staying on the forefront of new trends in amenities and evidence-based design, we can create assisted living designs that enhance comfort and wellness and offers residents more choices. We spend a lot of time onsite throughout the renovation, providing project management and oversight.

Budgets With a Lot Less Budge

We are meticulous in our development and review of the FF&E budget, carefully testing and validating the budget in relationship to the furniture plans. Our budget allowances for flooring, window coverings and interior directional signage packages are informed and realistic. We provide ongoing coordination and oversight to insure that all agreed-upon items are incorporated into the contract documents and the construction process.
