Environments for Aging - Fall 2018 - 29

Creative room design elements can help recreate date night and evoke fond
memories. In this example, a partial car chassis, complete with dashboard and
hood, includes theater chairs or wheelchairs in place of the seats to provide the
experience of taking a date to a drive-in movie.

easy access for kitchen or service staff. Design elements like this
also represent a realistic, approachable cost model to creating
exclusive areas in an existing space.

Rethinking traditional spaces

OZ ARCHITECTURE

For many, a walk in a park or a visit to a garden can be a simple
and serene experience to share with a companion. While many
architects design memorial gardens in care communities, there's
an opportunity to flip the script. The same garden space could be
repurposed as a "lovers' garden," with accessible pathways and
intentional plantings (think red roses and daisies) designed for
picking for that special someone. Water fountains, hedge mazes,
and other eye-catching design features can foster experiential
spaces ideal for promoting activity as well as private, meaningful
time between sweethearts.
Likewise, many senior living residences are designed with chapels to provide religious services. From mass and worship to bible
study or final sacraments, a chapel space can be a fitting complement to any community but especially an elder community.
Not every project will include a dedicated wedding chapel, but
integrating one may offer the opportunity for married couples to
renew their vows or committed couples to take the next step. Designing a space that's intended for expressions of love and commitment can be a meaningful use of space, and it could double as
a reception area or religious chapel in a pinch.
While traditional care communities haven't always made
romantic relationships a priority, implementing small, affordable
spaces and thoughtful design elements can be the key to creating
environments that bring people together and foster loving relationships as we age. EFA
