IN BRIEF

20 Unit Memory Care Assisted Living

 

THE CHALLENGE

To create an easily adaptable prototype small house than can be replicated to other communities while also creating a marketable environment that preserves the autonomy and care needs of dementia and memory care residents.

 

THE SOLUTION

Creating a sense of home and family that seniors are seeking, this cottage style design incorporates the features of Small House by encouraging resident interactivity around the hearth and kitchen where most families are prone to socialize naturally.

 

Twin homes are designed back to back with elevations that fit within the surrounding neighborhood.  One side is designed with inspiration of common country farmsteads, while the opposite reflects that of a north shore lodge with a rustic charm.
