The Center for Healthy Living at Moorings Park Health and Fitness Honorable Mention Designer Wegman Design Group / Perkins Eastman Client Moorings Park Where Naples, Florida A ttached to an upscale senior living facility, the Center for Healthy Living at Moorings Park applies a spa-like aesthetic and amenities to a multi-disciplinary health and wellness program for senior citizens. The 37,000-squarefoot facility enables visitors to develop a life/health plan-a holistic approach to aging and lifestyle-through five core wellness activities and services: a medical clinic, physical therapy, physical fitness, comprehensive spa, and education and social interaction. The goal is to give active, retiring Baby Boomers the tools to better manage their own health outside of typical institutional healthcare settings. This health and wellness center-which also contains education spaces, a cafe, and a health food and supplement store-provides programming to keep minds sharp and bodies healthy. Residents can 98 take advantage of the creative arts studio, art gallery space, and lecture hall for visiting speakers. The building's open floor plan, gardens, and rooftop landscaping give visitors a connection to nature, as do large exterior terraces and floor-to-ceiling windows in the gallery. The interior design by Wegman Design Group and Perkins Eastman features a consistent palette of colors and materials. Bamboo warms the space and brushed stainless steel lends an air of contemporary contrast and strength. The color scheme focuses on white paired with a range of soft greens and blues that call to mind the palm trees and the Gulf of Mexico near to its Florida location. A bright orange accent wall in the health food and supplement store and leaf-shaped inserts in the terrazzo flooring in the gallery space provide visual diversity. -Zach Mortice october 2014 PHotoGrAPHy: rANDAll PErry healthcare environment awards
