The AG Team enjoyed EFA 2018 in Savannah, GA. From sharing our latest work in the Gallery displays to supporting EFA as one of the networking event sponsors, the conference provided many opportunities to connect with colleagues and discuss industry insights.
AG’s John Cronin and Casey Adams from Masonic Homes of Kentucky, entertained the audience during their session – Creating Connectivity: Building a Dynamic Senior Living Experience Within a Vibrant Community. Casey shared the history of Masonic Homes of Kentucky as well as highlights of the vibrant Louisville community. Casey and John then discussed two case study projects that are highlights of the campus – Miralea and the soon to be completed Meadow Active Lifestyle Community. This campus continues to add products that enhance the life of their residents while strengthening the connection to the community at-large. Keep an eye out for photos of the soon to be completed Meadow. This is an arts and culture focused project that you will want to learn more about.
AG’s Eric Harrmann and Amy Schoenemann from Capri Senior Communities, inspired their audience with insights from a social experiment during their session – The Casetta: A New Vibrant Living Option for Independent Seniors. They discussed the development of this co-housing product that brings four residential units together with a connected communal space. Amy shared resident feedback from the Village Pointe Commons community where this product was implemented. Eric then explored design options for evolving the concept. The two look forward to experimenting with new versions of the unique living option on several upcoming projects.
EFA provides a great platform for sharing innovative concepts and exploring the future of senior living. The AG Team looks forward to next year’s conference in Salt Lake City, UT – April 7-10, 2019.
