THE RIDGE PINEHURST EARNS NATIONAL RECOGNITION FOR ITS DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE

Environments for Aging magazine, a leading publication for senior living design, recently released findings for top design and architecture for senior living communities across the nation. The 2021 Design Showcase offers a compilation of architecture and interior design projects representing outstanding innovative design solutions in new or renovated senior care environments.

“It’s been tremendous to hear all the compliments about the look and feel of this community from residents, team members and other visitors,” said Mandy Hampton, COO of The Ridge Senior Living. “Having industry experts also recognize it among extraordinary nation-wide competition is truly icing on the cake.”

The Ridge Pinehurst, designed by Lantz-Boggio Architects & Interior Designers, and other entrants in the Design Showcase were judged on four criteria:

  • Innovation
  • Experience
  • Aesthetics
  • Operations / Well-being

These key design elements were highlighted to the Design Showcase’s jury of industry experts:

  • The health and wellness amenities at the Club Ridge spa
  • How the public entrance at the Club Ridge spa connects The Ridge Pinehurst to the greater community
  • Inviting spaces that foster neighborhood connections, such as the indoor/outdoor dining venues, the exhibition kitchen, bar, and individual theaters and game areas for all three levels of living
  • Floor-to-ceiling glass strategically placed throughout social and activity areas optimizing views of the courtyard, mountains or the golf course
  • Technology, programming and learning spaces based on senior living research to enable independence, engagement and well-being

“We’re humbled by the recognition and honorable mention,” said Katrissa Gates, executive director of The Ridge Pinehurst. “The physical design elements are mainly to promote and complement the intangibles — especially the culture — that make this community such a special place.”
