SantaFe Senior Living

Project Challenge:

Successful senior living communities resonate with the market they serve, and SantaFe Senior Living was committed to bringing a new senior living option to this area despite the challenges of the recession.

Design Solution:

With each new project, SantaFe Senior Living is committed to delivering a product that is appropriately suited for the geographic setting and the customer expectations in that area. At The Terraces this was accomplished through a distinct architectural style and careful planning that embeds operational efficiencies, a seamless and functional design that makes resident life more comfortable.

The architectural style for the project reflects Florida’s Mediterranean influences as inspired by the architecture of Addison Mizner’s 1920’s portfolio – the “old Florida” feel of a Mediterranean Revival hotel. This highly articulated exterior and interior design incorporates courtyards, fountains, paving patterns, and tile details as well as elegant stonework, ornamental railings, iron work, columns and colonnades to create textured and layered spaces that provide a visual adventure from every angle. This style not only resonates with the residents, it creates a distinct sense of place. The carefully considered details make this campus seem like a well-established community with a long history which belies the fact that it is brand new.
