01 Floorplan Reconfiguration
Reconfigured ground floor footprint of previously held Elder Care facility with new offices and office suites, particularly HR as this is a headquarters space, and adult day care room, reception area, kitchen/breakroom, and HC bathrooms.
02 Functional Upgrades
Improved lighting design for even, bright lighting, appropriate paint colors, furnishings, workspaces, upgraded the bathrooms, and a breakroom with new appliances and fixtures, both in the adult day care room and the kitchen for staff.
03 Visual Impairment Considerations
Even lighting to eliminate shadow patterns, and bright colors to give focal points, were considerations of the design to reduce visual stressors that may accompany clients with Alzheimer’s. The red doors to important rooms such as daycare and lavatories are a significant color callout, and the visual effect of even hues and soft patterns eliminates harsh shadows or textures that may alarm or disorient those with Alzheimer’s or similar progressive diseases.
