Assisted Living, Memory Support

Jacksonville, FL

This Assisted Living and Memory Care community was the first of its brand down in Florida, following a sister community in Naples.  Designing on a tight construction budget helped selections on consciousness of materials and process design awareness bring the team together.  Research of performance in solution dyed carpet tiles, pairing with carpeting the entire building (including corridors & resident rooms) helped bring the flooring cost down dramatically.  This was an easy design decision/approval by all stakeholders.  Aesthetically we could tie commons and resident rooms together, leaving no transition barrier for resident “shuffling” foot traffic.  The impact of durability & ease of maintenance will help keep this building looking top notch.  The whimsical pattern in the overall carpet mimics the natural beach grass, local to the building site and surroundings.  Staying true to the nature of the region helps make this feel like HOME for current and future residents and families.
