Senior Services Inc.
This 30,000 SF facility created a new home for this private non-profit organization devoted to helping the elderly live with dignity through a variety of community and volunteer based programs.
The facility program included headquarters office space, program and educational spaces, a volunteer lounge and fitness center, and a Meals-On-Wheels packing and meal delivery center. The entrance to this space begins to tell the story of Senior Services, a private non-profit agency serving the needs of the elderly in the Triad area. Moving to their new 30,000 square foot facility and consolidating several locations gave them the opportunity to strengthen their identity in the community. Distancing the rotunda reception area from the entrance, and angling the wall, gave the designers the opportune space for graphics to communicate the spirit of the agency and recognize their supporters.
The skylit rotunda makes a physical link between the three primary functions – office and support space, community education space, and volunteer center, while the timeline wall makes an emotional link to all generations who visit the facility.
