Meyer Principal Shannon Remaley, NCIDQ, IIDA, WELL AP, LEED Green Associate, was interviewed for the latest issue of Seniors Housing Business Magazine, reflecting on how architects and interior designers see their work shift toward updating older properties as ground-up development activity continues to wane.
“Starting from scratch is wonderful, but renovations let us reimagine something … It’s a bit of a puzzle, and that’s nice. How do you renovate something that feels forward thinking, but also might have to live next to something that’s outdated? How can both spaces respect each other? We really see a wonderful opportunity to see how the environment can change how residents and staff are living and operating. It helps with the evidence-based design — how the design can impact the care.”
