Cornerstone MRC in Top 10 Finalists for EFA’s Remodel/Renovation Awards
Environments for Aging recently announced the top 10 finalists for its 2016 Remodel/Renovation Competition. The competition features single renovated spaces within a community and were evaluated on criteria such as why the space was renovated, the impact of the design on the residents, families and staff, and any challenges to the renovation.
The renovation to the dining commons was part of a $3 million project to provide the latest features in both living space and services to the residents at Cornerstone. The renovation transformed their dining commons into a more service oriented, luxuriously appointed dining and living area.
The entire dining area was gutted, removing half walls and faux columns to opening up the space for more functional use and dramatic fixtures and furniture. A soft and sophisticated palette of beiges and blues updated the existing drab finishes. The existing private dining was relocated and replaced with a bistro. The bistro is a light food service venue. These improvements to the dining allow Cornerstone to extend services hours and function to their residents. A focal point of the dining corridor, the sun room punctuates the end of the dining room with a beautiful sitting area bathed in natural light.
