Life Style CCRC, China, Design Competition
Imagine living in a vibrant, active community where older adults are able to enjoy top class services, social connectedness, and health and wellness in a beautiful and varied garden environment. KGRW & Associates, BCT Architects and Metropolitan Studio presented conceptual plans a for retirement community for a premiere site in China. The luxury community is planned around celebrating the two main unique features of the site: a large lake to the southeast of the site and an existing building that will be the jewel of the center of the community. These two unique site features have been combined with the highly successful design qualities integral to beautiful resorts and large scale retirement communities to make for a plan that will not just be visually pleasing to live in, but will provide the best framework to operate the community in a way that will encourage the highest level of physical, social, and spiritual well-being of its residents.
The design team completed the architectural and interior design direction for the marketing center which will eventually turn into the first community building housing many amenities including two restaurants and a pool. The team combined existing buildings with new structures offering expansive day light. The combination of natural materials and natural light provide a stunning backdrop for everyday activities.
