Environments for Aging - Fall 2016 - 32

Year-round use Outdoor amenities might include bocce ball areas, putting greens, tennis and pickle ball courts, dog parks, event lawns, or entertainment patios. Communities can exercise playful creativity when analyzing their residents' needs and design options, but it's not solely about what kinds of spaces and features can be added. Architects must also consider solutions that answer to the change of seasons and create areas that are comfortable regardless of outside temperature. Previous page: At Edgemere in Dallas, the use of trellises and solid beams add shade, depth, and texture to the outdoor spaces, with patios designed to emulate a Tuscan escape. These areas are also equipped with European-style gardens and courtyards with water features, outdoor fire pit entertaining areas, and grills. Right: Edgemere's campus features a sparkling pond and water fountain feature that's home to a brood of ducks. Above: In Oro Valley, Ariz., Nakoma Sky will provide active seniors with a community nested into the desert landscape, with unobstructed views of the nearby mountain ranges and indoor and outdoor living experiences. Walking trails will guide residents throughout the campus, helping them explore each amenity. 32 EFAmagazine.com * Fall 2016 With that goal in mind, more communities are opting for a "four seasons" room, as its design allows operators to adjust the space based on the weather. If it's unbearably hot or bitterly cold, they can enclose the space, yet still have that patio feel and view. If it's a beautiful day, they can open the windows and allow fresh air inside, within a screenedin porch. These spaces can be equipped with heating and cooling systems, making the temperature of the space adaptable and comfortable. Heated flooring options are ideal additions for communities located in notoriously cold climates, while motorized shade curtains, misted cooling systems with fans that disperse water into the air, proper solar orientation, and overhangs to optimize solar benefits can all play a role in improving comfort. Additionally, these spaces can be finished with entertainment systems, fire places, and small bars. THREE: LIVING ARCHITECTURE Complexities of design include considerations for environments to change with the seasons, areas to extend dining outdoors, and spaces where a community can entertain residents and where residents can entertain their own guests. http://www.EFAmagazine.com
