Survey Helps Guide Design
Spellman Brady & Company, an award-winning interior design firm, recently completed the comprehensive 71,000 sq. ft. interior design for the Kingswood Senior Living Community expansion and renovation in Kansas City, Missouri.
After 35 years, Kingswood Senior Living Community recognized that their residents needed more space, more amenities and more choices. Spellman Brady understood the importance for the community to embrace the changes, which included rethinking the space for new uses. Beyond the new entrance, bistro, auditorium, and independent living villas, the remodeled assisted living and memory care apartments, administrative office, wellness and other common amenity areas all have an immediate impact.
Initially, Spellman Brady engaged the residents, staff, family members and potential residents with a two-day design survey that focused on furniture, color palettes, millwork, and many other distinctive characteristics that helped guide the design-style including “test-driving” dining chairs. By the end of the expansion and renovation, the interior design helped redefined traditional details with unique memory care digital picture frames, furniture with curved lines, and customized fabric transforming the resident experience.
“Our community is energized with the new, updated amenities and design, which allow residents to connect with each other more freely” said Terri Moore, Executive Director at Kingwood Senior Living. “Spellman Brady design helped bridge the past to the future.”
