Environments for Aging - Spring 2021 - 25

Campus cues
While the campus' natural setting helped
guide the location and layout of the CCRC,
the college's 100-plus-year-old buildings
inspired the architecture and interiors. " The
biggest directive was to make sure that this
new community blends seamlessly with the
college campus, " says Nicole Hill, senior
project manager at Faulkner Design Group
(Dallas), which provided interior architecture
and design on the project.
In fact, one of the most prominent architectural details on the college campus-a spire
on every building- was incorporated into the
CCRC buildings and provided inspiration for
the community's name.
A variety of natural materials was also integrated into the façade and interior spaces to
reflect the architecture on campus, including
stacked stone walls and columns and wood
ceiling beams and column coverings. The
region's traditional design vernacular inspired
the interior design, mixed with some modern
touches, Hill says. Examples include traditional
plaid fabrics in updated colors, wingback
chairs with clean lines, custom broadloom
carpets with large-scale geometric prints, and
wood flooring mixed with porcelain tile that
features a Carrara marble look. " We pulled
those materials that have been around for a
long time and that are familiar to residents in
their homes, " she says.
A color palette of warm gray neutrals accented with saturated jewel tones, such as deep
teal and merlot, are used throughout the public
spaces in reference to the colors found outside
at the lake and nearby mountains. Hill says four
standard designer-recommended schemes and
four upgraded schemes for independent living
were offered to residents to personalize their
living environments.

behind doors, are designed to further support
the sense of home in each setting. " We tried
to make sure that at each level, the feel of
the building was the same-the same quality,
same openness as much as possible, and
same opportunity for interaction, " Kite says.
Additionally, Kite says both the main building with independent living units and the
healthcare building have their own prominent
entrances to make them equally important
(they're also connected and accessible via
interior corridors). " The healthcare building
isn't set off to the side and isolated, " Kite says.

Fostering connection
While students can work in a variety of jobs at
the CCRC, the project team designed several
spaces to support socializing with residents,
as well, including a club room with a variety of
games and activities and a multipurpose room
for performances or presentations. " The whole
program from the very beginning was to integrate students with residents, " Kite says.
The community began opening in June
2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic, with
a wing of independent living and the cottages, while the rest of the independent living
units and the healthcare building opened
in October. Steber says the project's large,
open spaces have given residents, students,
and staff room to gather while still maintaining social distances and adhering to safety
protocols. Kite adds that, overall, the right
foundation is in place to grow and support the
community's intergenerational vision. " Even
in the short time it's been open, it's incredible
to see the respect and love [residents and
students] have for each other, " he says. EFA

Smooth transition
In the healthcare building, specifically, efforts
were made to provide a sense of continuity and familiarity for residents who require
more services as they age and progress
through the buildings. For example, the same
materials and finishes from independent living
are used in the healthcare building where
applicable, including dining chairs and tables,
carpets, colors, and artwork.
Other touches, such as a mix of functional
and decorative lighting, living room-inspired
seating areas, and staff spaces located
