Parkside Homes Inc. recently received the “Design for Aging” award at the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging for the “Park Homes” project currently under construction on its Hillsboro campus.
Lu Janzen, Parkside Homes executive director, received the award last week at the AAHSA annual conference in San Antonio, Texas. The architect for Parkside’s project is Jeffrey Anderzhon from InVision Architecture based in Omaha, Neb.
The American Institute of Architects’ Design for Aging Knowledge community and the AAHSA invite architects, designers and providers to submit projects to be considered for the award.
A jury of professionals from the fields of architecture and care for the aging evaluate the entries and select entries that represent a cross-section of design-for-aging facilities.
The goal of the evaluation team is to illustrate contemporary design trends that reflect advancement in the quality of care and services for the aging population. Citations will be awarded to projects that represent advanced design concepts that are sensitive to the needs of the aging population.
