The 5,355-SF lobby, reception, and corridor were dated and harkened to an institutional skilled nursing home. The Owner wanted a lobby renovation to provide a transitional space to help residents, family, and visitors. The design and finishes were carefully thought out to shift the mindset of a resident or guest entering from their day-to-day into a space that is calming and peaceful for relaxation, games, reading, and general conversation.
Upon entering, the guest is greeted by a remodeled reception area with a hospitality aesthetic. Adjacent to the reception area is an inviting lobby with casual, comfortable seating. The central feature of the lobby is a water vapor fireplace that gives the residents an attractive and memorable fireplace with the safety features of the vapor style.
Beyond the lobby, the guest and resident find a renovated café, which features a bistro-style atmosphere. The Joyful Living area on the adjacent wall to the café is a feature for the recognition of donors for the project. The furniture throughout is all new, comfortable, and residential-looking, however, it is commercial senior care furniture with durable and cleanable finishes.
