Supplement to Environments for Aging

Like many communities, WellSpring started out 25 years ago with
relatively modest common areas.
With the significant growth of its
independent living population in
recent years, Well-Spring believed
it was time for a major upgrade of
community amenities. CJMW designed a phased addition and renovation, creating a blend of social and
activities spaces that both encourage
gathering among residents as well as
invite the local community in.

Part of the project addressed the
lack of variety in dining services
by expanding the dining footprint
and adding new venues. Large art
and craft studios expand resident
activity offerings. But the focal
point is a 338-seat auditorium
designed specifically for seniors.
As an arts-oriented group, WellSpring wanted to create a unique
amenity to build community, as
well as to differentiate this single
site life plan community within the
regional marketplace.
Drawing on previous experience
designing performance venues,
CJMW brought in experts with
whom they had previously collaborated. The team's collective knowledge formed a base for additional
study and research focusing on
how best to adapt critical design
elements to its primary population without losing performance
quality.
The result is a theater where all
members of the audience can see
and hear as well as possible. Residents can attend educational talks,
performances, resident/staff meetings, and memorial services. The
theater can accommodate more
than 40 wheelchairs-far above the
standard requirement. Acoustics
and building systems are specially
designed to suit this population
and its needs.
Since opening, the theater has
attracted local and regional talent
to appear in front of joint WellSpring and community audiences,
enhancing the lives of its current
residents and strengthening its
connections with the surrounding
community.
