Canvas Valley Forge > Hospitality meets the home at Canvas Valley Forge in Pennsylvania Amish country. The DC and New York offices of ForrestPerkins devised a modern senior living facility that merges charming residential details with a sense of place. The arrival area is scaled down to slowly introduce the property, revealing grand communal spaces anchored by two central courtyards. An understated material and color palette were "intentionally kept light for a fresh, modern, and airy feel throughout," says senior associate Toby Bishop. Two key factors in the design were personalization-highlighted by a rotating art collection showcasing the residents' own pieces-and wellness, which is centered on indoor-outdoor living that ensures "the beauty of the space is what leaves an impression," says associate principal Sharon Bilbeisi.
