Inside and out
Envelope-pushing interiors and
community outreach efforts grabbed
attention during this year's EFA
Design Showcase judging, but the
jury's still out on whether operators
and designers are taking it far
enough. BY KRISTIN D. ZEIT

Brickstone by St. John's is designed
to invite neighbors in while offering
residents connections outside,
creating a deep community
integration that earned an Award of
Merit in the EFA Design Showcase.

FEATURES
24 Pushing boundaries
In Nashville, the new Abe's Garden is rethinking memory care-and offering
