The Great Room at Tockwotton on the Waterfront
Our designs take us many places, but the team at Thoma-Holec Design has to admit that Tockwotton on the Waterfront in Providence, Rhode Island was one of our favorites. Every common area within Tockwotton has an incredible view of something wonderful! The Seekonk River, a heavily wooded area, a city view of Providence, or the beautiful landscaped internal courtyards. This five-story, not-for-profit long-term living community encompasses all levels of care: assisted living, memory care, respite, short-term rehabilitation, and long-term care
Since the Tockwotton team had been operating out of a building that was built in the mid 1800’s, the residents, staff and families were accustomed to a traditional, historical décor. Our challenge was to make them comfortable in a newly constructed building that offered a home like-setting that was more modern in design. The design team was given the responsibility to ensure that each level of care within the community provided an equally comfortable, senior-appropriate environment. An east coast cottage theme was chosen and carried throughout many areas of the community.
Every aspect of Tockwotton on the Waterfront was carefully designed, engineered and built to successfully serve each resident at every stage of the aging process. Whether in the assisted living or memory care residences or receiving short-term rehabilitation or skilled nursing, every detail of the building was thoughtfully planned to function both individually and seamlessly together. Details such as color schemes, wall and floor finishes, and furniture were carefully selected to serve both form and function, yet also provide a safe and comfortable residential environment.
