The design includes “memory boxes” at the doorway to each suite. These boxes provide visual clues to help residents recognize their door. Scope of the project included: Three different additions in different areas of the existing structure. A major remodel with complete removal and replacement of interior finishes in 20% of existing area. The project took place in stages so that the facility maintained full operations and occupancy.
