REMODEL/RENOVATION COMPETITION

2020

Riddle Village had a very clear vision
in mind when they sought to redesign
and renovate their formal dining room:
preserve the Colonial aesthetic of the
current space. Yet, they still wanted to
achieve a transformation that would
impress current and prospective residents, staff, and visitors. The full scope
of the project included the Governour's
Inne, the adjoining Chesapeake Room,
and the nearby elevator lobby.
The design solution was the mix of
two styles that traditionally do not mix:
modern and traditional. The Contemporary Colonial style that was created
features floating faux wood ceilings,
wood trellises, and decorative panels
to provide intimacy. Eliminating a wall
that separated the Chesapeake Room
and the elevator lobby introduced a
sense of openness and connection. Incorporating brighter colors revitalized
the space and using multiple textures
and patterns served to make the dining

Jury comments:
* Love the way the colonial style
was made more modern while still
maintain the verna cular. Opening
of the corner and walls to the hall
created a much more welcoming
space. Light fixtures and color
pallets complement each other and
do not detract. The inclusion of the
bar and dropped wood ceiling and
lattice work creates a nook within
the dining space while still not
seeming to be out of place.
* A great dining repositioning of old
to new. I love the finish selection
and they definitely broke the mold
for what we typically see in senior
living while still giving a classic
timeless look and feel.
* The design team accomplished
the goal of preserving the past and

bringing in modern design elements
to add life to the spaces. Creative
ceiling layouts and a great variety
of seating options within the larger
space makes for a more engaging
dining experience. Beautiful
variety of furniture selections and
use of color in the fabrics. This
transformed environment provides
a dining environment that would
rival any 5-star restaurant.
* The renovation achieved not
only the wow factor, but the
design team did a wonderful
job of breaking up the seating
groups. It is difficult not to look
at these projects through the
social distancing lenses and this
project does a good job creating
flexibility for the residents to
have some barriers. The theme
of Contemporary Colonial is well
executed with interior design, color
scheme, and furnishing.
* This renovation was able to
delicately balance the historical
surroundings while marrying
updated yet classical elements to
improve the flow and functions to
enhance resident life.
