Environments for Aging - Summer 2022 - 22

A warm wood ceiling
provides a sense of scale in
the library, which opens up
to an adjacent hobby space
and large hearth room,
allowing visual connection
between spaces.
water actually drains into a stormwater feature
pond or into a regional stormwater pond northeast
of the campus.
Throughout the site, the landscape plan was
designed to enhance existing plantings and
entice residents to get out and move around.
The use of native grasses throughout the campus,
along with wildflowers and no-mow fescue,
helps to reduce water needs. The dense,
drought-tolerant grasses require less irrigation,
which also helps to save on long-term costs.
Various landscape elements were incorporated
into the site to promote further engagement,
as well. These include an outdoor fireplace,
amphitheater, and a pickleball court (the latter
two cleverly masking fire access pads), as well
as resident gardens and trails.
Another campus highlight is a memory care
garden with a walking loop, tucked into an area
behind the memory care wing on the ground
floor and designed to engage the senses and

encourage movement and interaction. For example,
Jones says, aspen trees in the garden will
flutter and give the space a sound aspect, raised
planting beds offer the opportunity for touch,
and fragrant lavender delivers scent.
Natural solution
Ultimately, the design team achieved its nature-driven
goals for the project through a
gentle approach to the exquisite surroundings.
" Our thinking was, How do we respect nature,
and with a light touch? " says Jones.
