Balfour at Littleton
The inspiration for the character of this senior living project came from traditional equestrian architecture in the area. The arrival is reminiscent of the main “house” with the Memory Care wing as a “stable” character. The building is organized to take advantage of the creek corridor to the south and creates courtyards for both Assisted Living and Memory Care residents. The use of materials and details such as the cupolas, barn doors and brackets reinforce the character of the building. The courtyards include walking loops, and layered landscape complements the equestrian inspired architecture. The skylight in the “barn” area brings diffused light to memory care residents in the dining and activity area.
