2014 ASID Design Excellence Award, Aging In Place Winner
Client: Private residence in the Elizabeth Scott Community
Scope: Assisted Living Apartment Design
Location: Maumee, Ohio
Assisted Living Apartment is Designed to Meet Resident’s Specific Needs and Taste
The client needed to downsize from a single-family home to a 385-square foot studio apartment in a senior living community. In less than three weeks 55+ TLC Interior Design came up with a vibrant, ADA-compliant space that incorporated existing and new furnishings and was designed to make daily activities easier, given the client’s visual impairment, arthritis and need for a walker.
The apartment was infused with his favorite colors and interests–nature, birds, animals and music. Large-scale media, artwork and ample lighting was provided, and appropriate cabinet pulls were installed to accommodate arthritic hands.
