For the Burnham Family Memory Care Residence at Avery
Heights in Hartford, Connecticut, Amenta Emma Architects
renovated a 10,000-square-foot independent living residential
wing for individuals with dementia. The facility features 20 studio
apartments with a shared living, dining, and kitchen area in a
small-house arrangement. In addition to creating a place with all
of the amenities found in a typical senior center, the design team
also had to consider the care of the residents by providing suitable

spaces for physical exercise and mental stimulation activities.
Even with the limitations of the existing structure, and
the specialized program requirements, the architects were able
to create flexible, safe areas that allow individuals to retain as
much independence and dignity as possible. Controlled artificial
and natural lighting provides bright illumination during the day and
warmer, soft luminosity at night. The interiors feature a palette of
warm neutrals and cool tints. Senior interior designer Emily E. Knipe
notes that, "Soothing blue and green shades have been shown
to have a calming effect."
Residents can gather around the fireplace and in the great
room for activities and to socialize, or if they want to be alone, they
can go to the sensory room for aromatherapy treatments, relaxation,
and quiet time.
Just as much thought was given to the outside areas as
well. "A strong connection to the outdoors is important for health
and wellness," explains Amenta Emma principal, Myles R. Brown.
The secure garden with the walking path is an important amenity
for residents, because studies show that those with dementia
who have access to gardens are less likely to display aggression
or experience injuries.
"The renovation of the Burnham Family Memory Care Residence
exemplifies our belief that through evidence-based design, and the
intelligent repositioning of assets and resources, our work will further
our clients' mission and improve the health and well-being of their
residents," says Brown. -ANNA ZAPPIA
