We were very honored Saturday, August 13, 2011, at the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Arizona North Chapter Annual Awards Dinner. First place in the Senior Living category was awarded to Principal LuAnn Thoma-Holec, ASID, for senior living interior design of the independent living bistro at MorningStar Senior Living’s Dayton Place community located in Denver, Colorado. First place winners were featured in the September issue of Phoenix Magazine.
Our key accomplishment with the bistro is an area that offers an invigorating and stimulating environment, which is conducive to socialization and interaction with staff, residents and family. As with every project, we also followed specific senior design principles to ensure mobility, safety, and comfort for the residents as they age. Our design solution also incorporates materials designed for long-term durability and maintenance, which eliminate the need and expense of premature replacement.
The scope of the project was a complete remodel of Dayton Place’s Independent Living residence. Thoma-Holec Design was responsible for space planning, millwork design, architectural detailing, lighting design, finish selections, window treatment, furniture and artwork procurement, and installation.
