Environments for Aging - Spring 2021 - 39

RLPS ARCHITECTS

So, the type of integration and engagement that
inspired your project was really how to forge connections between the residents and students. Tell
us a little bit about how that was achieved.
Nicole Hill: Berry College has the largest contiguous college campus in the United
States, spanning 27,000 acres. However, The
Spires' site was selected to sit just one-third of
a mile away from the college, so that it would
connect the community and the campus by a
simple walking trail. This allowed easy access
to the campus for the residents, where they
could attend school functions or events, sporting events, or even enroll in a few courses.
Likewise, Berry College has a life works
program, where students can work on campus
to gain personal and professional development
experiences. The Spires at Berry College, from
its inception, was always designed to partake
in that program.
And then on top of that, we were able, from
an interior design standpoint, to provide several
areas within the community that support those
intergenerational experiences outside of the life
works school program. So, we have a club room
that's outfitted with game tables and a shuffleboard table. We have a large multipurpose room
designed for lectures and speeches, community
events, and musical performances. And then
these relationships between resident and student
continue to grow through shared activities.
Silvis: And an idea that we've heard brought
up a couple of times so far is when working to address feelings of isolation and supporting interactions between multiple generations, a piece of that
is ensuring you're creating spaces that invite the

community in, encourage family visits, and so on.
Dustin, I know this is something you considered heavily on the LiveWell project. Tell us a little
bit about how your design supports that goal.
Dustin Julius: The story of LiveWell Center
for Resilient Living (CRL) really goes back to
a design philosophy that emerged early in
the planning process, and that's the idea of
designing with-not just for-those who are
living with cognitive impairment. And so, by
partnering with community residents who
were living with dementia as well as their family
members, this campus reinvention, including the
CRL, was informed.
Throughout the planning process, the entire
team was challenged to consistently listen to
and partner with these individuals. The CRL reinvents LiveWell's adult day care programming,
with purpose-built spaces where residents
can explore their interests and pursue their
passions. And in addition to serving residents,
the CRL extends beyond their campus, giving
opportunities to people from the surrounding
community.
From a design perspective, the existing
courtyards have been reimagined with intergenerational play areas, outdoor dining opportunities, and event spaces. These areas help foster
an environment where loved ones don't merely
come to visit, but they're coming to engage in
meaningful activities, educational events, and
advancement program opportunities.
Silvis: Now, transitioning to our next trend,
this is the thoughtful integration of projects
within their sites and geographic locations via
architecture and interior solutions. Ray, The

Above: The design for LiveWell Center
for Resilient Living in Plantsville, Conn.,
provides a setting where people with
dementia as well as their families can
connect with others and engage in
meaningful activities. In addition to
serving its residents, the model invites
members of the surrounding community in
for events, seminars, and other initiatives.
Opposite, top: The Ridge Pinehurst
in Lakewood, Colo., has a neighborhood
entry to Club Ridge, its health and
wellness center, that allows the space to
function as a public-facing amenity where
guests, community members, staff, or
neighbors can visit. Opposite, bottom:
An intimate theater room doubles as a
screening area for sporting events to help
boost resident-student interaction at
The Spires at Berry College in Rome, Ga.
Previous pages: Located within a
vibrant shopping and lifestyle district in
Austin, Texas, Maravilla at The Domain
creates a walkable and connected
community. The constrained urban site
inspired the solution of three midrise
towers organized around four courtyards
and connected by a first-floor Center for
Healthy Living.
