An assisted living location in Gonzales Louisiana, the Client's marketing and motto reads "living green". The design concept had two distinct parts, the aesthetics and sustainability, both having equal importance. Our firm used the Client's motto literally as the Concept. "Living"… the design first and for most must provide a safe, comfortable, "home-like" experience. "Green"…. The design incorporates a holistic and seamless sustainable strategy for both the residence and environment. The facility was designed to be an assisted living location unique to the area. First, the design used less traditional interiors and a more transitional/modern scheme. Next, furnishings, materials and finishes were aesthetically pleasing, but durable and met the needs of aging residents. Finally, design choices and specifications incorporated sustainable strategies throughout the facility providing a holistic approach to the entire project.
