20 Mar HarborChase of South Oklahoma City
Nearly complete progress photos of HarborChase South Oklahoma City’s newest assisted living community.
March saw the completion of one of our largest and longest projects to date: HarborChase of South Oklahoma City. For the last few years we were lucky enough to partner with HarborChase, Confluent Development and Rosemann Architects to create a stunning new assisted living community. This project was 107,000 square feet of new construction, consisting of 112 resident units: 80 Assisted Living and 30 Memory Care. It has four dining rooms, 3 living rooms, and an in-house salon. It also boasts two arts and craft spaces, a pizza kitchen and an outdoor putting green, to name a few of our favorite amenities. The colors and patterns in the project and bold, yet comfortable and inviting. We’re so excited to see these spaces filled with new residents enjoying their home.
The Lobby and reception of a community is important because it sets the tone for the rest of the project. Knowing this, we had to make sure that it was both welcoming and impressive.
This space is filled with natural light and warmth, so we wanted to highlight the ceiling details with gorgeous custom light fixtures. Another huge design feature throughout the project is the Shaw custom carpet. It pulls the soothing, yet vibrant color scheme throughout the community, further highlighted by the fabrics and colors found in each piece of furniture.
Main Dining Room and Bistro
Located in the center of the community, with two-story vaulted ceiling and windows, this space serves as a gathering space for meals and also connects other spaces in the project. The central, four-sided booth, serves as the foundation of the room. Topped with an impressive custom floral arrangement, the booth highlights the grandiose ceiling and energetic color scheme.
The bistro is home to more casual “to-go” dining, and reception for friends and family over coffee or tea. It’s custom white leather booth grounds the seating against a playful backdrop of angular wallpaper and exposed gold pendant lighting.
Fine and Private Dining
The Fine and Private dining spaces were created to add variation and sophistication to the communities’ dining experience. The Fine Dining is soothing and elegant with framed wallpaper accents, a rich wood fireplace and deep purple custom carpet. The Private dining experience is for when residents share a meal privately with friends and family. It showcases an open-concept pizza kitchen and gorgeous chandelier with stitched leather wallpaper.
Club Room and Chapel
Two of the most impact ceilings in this Assisted Living Community are found in the Chapel/ Multipurpose space, and the Club Room. The Chapel ceiling has intricate arched woodwork disguising acoustical panels. While the Club Room’s dynamic angled lines showcase elegant cove lighting.
HarborChase Assisted Living Communities focus on community engagement, which is what we tried highlighting in this space. We designed three “bowling lanes” so residents can play video bowling together. This space is also filled with puzzle tables, vibrant fabrics and festive lighting. Combining all of these elements creates a space that is playful and engaging.
With a Community this size, it’s important to create ample opportunities for relaxation and resident connections. There are numerous “living spaces” scattered throughout the project that all showcase a different energy and color pallet. Surely residents will all find their favorite little nooks that are cozy and serene.
This community also has a memory care neighborhood for residents impacted by dementia and Alzheimer’s. Their dining room and living space are bright and cheerful for soothing visual stimulation. Both spaces have ample amount of room for residents and care members to interact and engage daily.
