suffered from a lack of continuity in
terms of interior and exterior design
influences, as the various buildings
were all constructed at different times.
When the property was acquired by
new ownership, it was apparent that

Jury comments:
* Vibrant colors and nature-based
artwork add visual interest and
are consistent with memory
care issues
* Life skills stations a wellconsidered design notion to
increase unguided activity and
pique interests of those cared
for
* A stunning transformation.
The refreshing contemporary
interior finishes and new fixtures
/ furniture help to emphasize
the separate functional activity
areas. This looks like a space I
would want to live in.
* The space feels warm and
elegant. The screen wall
pattern not only offers visual
privacy, but it elevates the
decorative quality of the space
as a whole. The play between
upholstery and finishes is one
hand unifying and on the other
dynamic and refreshing.
