Mercy Ridge Retirement Community - Timonium, Maryland
In order to increase the rental appeal for the high end Waterfront Apartments at Mercy Ridge, Heath Design Group developed an upgraded finish palette (including flooring, wall base, wall treatments, and millwork) for the kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms & entrance foyers. Design schemes were also created for the replacement of flooring in all of the common area corridors for both the Assisted Living and Independent Living wings.
Objectives / Challenges:
Balance the traditional architecture of the existing community with contemporary design elements pleasing to both long time residents and the next generation of seniors. Engage the residents and various committee members to elicit feedback and gain approval.
A feasibility study was conducted and a mock up was created for review and approval by all of the vested parties before final selections were made. A custom colored 2D rendering was also provided along with a finish board representing the recommended specifications and finishes. In addition, an interior rendering and virtual “walk through” of the space were provided for the client’s use.
