The reception desk was moved to the side from its front-and-center location while maintaining visual connections to the entrance and community spaces beyond.

Environments for Aging * special supplement PHOTO (AFTER): DEREK REEVES Jury comments: * This is a lovely, sophisticated, but not over-the-top renovation and reorganization of the main social spaces of a community. * There is some great out-of-the-box thinking here such as the glass secondfloor railing, making the logo a supergraphic in metal, and relocating the main reception desk. This design puts residents and visitors first while making staff service much more pleasant. * The interior character of the renovation is most compelling. We so often refer to creating a "sense of arrival," community spaces and a hospitalityfeel. This project achieves those goals successfully! The lobby and reception are inviting yet grand and contemporary. Reader comments: * The gathering spaces are more open and inviting with lighting to enhance the experience. And the leaf art design creates a great focal point along with being a significant wayfinding element. * I would move there in a heartbeat! * The Patrician is a beautiful mix of tones and materials. Very fresh.
