How Warner Design Associates Helped a Leading Memory Care Community Developer & Operator Establish Interior Design Process and Cost Efficiencies Nationwide
Posted on October 14, 2016 by Cynthia Warner
Warner Design Associates has been working with one of the nation’s leading memory care community developers and operators for over three years, helping the company implement appealing, comfortable interior design in several of its locations across the states. Over this time period, Warner Design Associates has completed the interior design for five of its memory care communities and is currently working on four others. Through a process of understanding the client’s challenges and goals, finding innovative solutions, and strategically implementing new learnings at each community, Warner Design Associates has not only produced high-quality design but has been able to establish process and cost efficiencies for the client.
To ensure that each community also had unique touches specific to each location, Warner Design Associates researched local points of interest, history, and cultural information. We then identified artwork relevant to that area and weaved those into the general design to create a more local, familiar feel for the residents. For example, the location in Murrieta, California has themes and imagery of the local vineyards, while the site in Chicago proudly displays historical photos of the city through the centuries. This standard palette approach has allowed Warner Design Associates and the client to work together swiftly and efficiently, while allowing room for custom efforts that enhance the local look and feel.
For each new community, Warner Design Associates communicates the custom pieces needed and the amount, and the client can rest assured knowing the exact furniture, quality and price is consistent across their locations.
Each of these scenarios has allowed Warner Design Associates and the client to work together in a time, labor and cost-saving manner.
