The Architectural Team Inc. recently announced the completion of Laurelwood at the Pinehills, the latest in the firm’s portfolio of senior communities. The 88,000-square-foot project offers independent living, assisted living and memory care under one roof.
Laurelwood at the Pinehills is among the first facilities of its kind designed from the start to be integrated into a pre-existing planned community, according to the company. It was designed based on feedback from resident focus groups conducted by the Northbridge Companies. The resulting structure offers room for 80 residents via a range of apartment styles and design options to enable residents to personalize their space.
“Laurelwood at the Pinehills is a uniquely long and narrow property, which required a creative multi-level design,” says The Architectural Team’s principal and vice president, Michael Liu. “The end result is a delightfully atypical community that allows for full use of the wooded vistas, and that offers widely varied apartment layouts and amenity spaces, an uncommon feature in senior living environments.”
Amenities include a theater room designed for musical performances and plays, a flexible atrium space perfect for informal gatherings or planned events, common area porches and walking paths. Laurelwood also offers residents several choices for dining. Amenities available within walking distance include a fitness center, outdoor pool and spa.
