12 Sep Before and After- Chancellor Gardens
Before and After photos of our Chancellor Gardens renovations.
We’ve had the pleasure to work on a few projects with MBK Senior Living, and this renovation might be one of our favorites yet!
This renovation encompassed nearly 16,000 square-feet of an existing Assisted Living & Memory Care Senior Living Community. While the existing building had a versatile open floor plan and multitude of amenity spaces, the previous design featured over-stimulating patterns, colors, and oversized furniture throughout. Throughout the dedicated project collaboration with the client, the new design sought to convey a ‘breath of fresh air’ by toning down the visual stimulation for the residents’ and their guests. The new design was focused on providing an elevated, yet comfortable, serene escape from the previous. Staying true to the local architecture & neighborhood, a calming color palette and highlighting key architectural elements creates a bold and well-balanced aesthetic throughout. With this, a sense of order and sophistication is now felt upon entering, creating not only an impactful first impression, but a feeling of ‘home’ and being cared for, speaking true to the client’s company core values.
Upon entering the community, a sense of ‘awe’ overcomes you with the stunning open concept floor plan. Taking the previous traditional building aesthetic and updating it with clean lines, crisp white accents with contrasting finishes, and updated architectural details creates a first impression that will last.
An architectural feature with the new wood canopy and decorative light fixtures provides a distinct eye-catching feature guiding you into the community. The custom reception desk encompasses a well thought out design for the staff to engage with guests directly from the lower ADA-Height counter section and provides privacy behind the transaction height counter. The decorative light fixtures provide a distinct eye-catching feature guiding you into the community. Adjacent from Reception is a peek-a-boo view of the new Bistro and colorful FF&E through the custom designed wood screen.
This lively space, located directly off the Grand Lobby is open for Residents to stop in and meet friends and family for a drink and light snack. The strategically placed TV is designed for hosting watch parties of local sports games, favorite television shows or broadcasting the always engaging activities calendar of events hosted by the community staff. Bold casework, two-toned metal light fixtures and warm wood accents create an invigorating space for all to enjoy.
Within the Bistro are a variety of seating areas creating a multi-purpose function of the entire space. This area’s key feature is the art niche with LED light cove. Creating intimate venues within a large room offers the residents’ and their families to utilize the same space and feel like they are in an extension of their own private apartments.
