Project: Design a healthcare community for dementia patients. The home is located in Clarksburg, West Virginia in a suburban area.
Design Concept: To honor the heritage of the residents, the design concept is "pioneer". The community is called The Mill Assisted Living and features a working mill water wheel in the interior courtyard for residents to enjoy.
Rough Plans: Rough plans for different areas provided ideas for how best to organize the spaces. Focus areas included the neighborhood commons, the general public space including a fitness center, and a guest unit.
Final Design: The final space plan evolved from the rough plans and sketches to a design that offered appropriate levels of privacy and comfort for the special residents of a dementia community.
Fitness Center Design
Elevations: Elevations of the fitness center feature the therapeutic elements of the restroom and massage therapy spaces.
Perspective: A perspective rendering of the fitness center massage room highlights the spa-like feel of the space.
Furniture, Fixtures and Finishes: The furniture, fixtures and finishes in the fitness center offer a soothing, healthful environment.
Guest Unit Design
Elevations: Elevations of the guest suite feature the materials and finishes and show some of the ceiling details. There is also an elevation showing the personalized door entry for a guest unit.
Perspective: A perspective rendering of the guest unit shows the traditional elements of the facility's theme.
Furniture, Fixtures and Finishes: The furniture, fixtures and finishes used throughout the guest unit demonstrate the pioneering theme.
Final Boards: The layout for the presentation boards was considered to include all drawings and materials in an organized manner. Material samples were paired with their respective area drawings for cohesiveness.
The final presentation included the finished drawings and materials for the overall facility as well as the fitness center and a guest unit.
