Points West Living
An aging population in Alberta’s rural areas has created a growing need for a variety of living options for seniors. A connection to the land and Alberta’s rural vernacular is an enduring source of design inspiration for many people living in the prairies, and AVID’s design speaks to the iconic grain elevators of the region.
While this type of seniors’ housing is currently in demand, population changes dictate that this demand will be quite different in the future – long before the building structure’s expiry date. To plan for this, the floor plans and the construction details have been designed for ease of future adaptability. For example, the current one-bedroom and two-bedroom units are incorporated into the floor plan in a way that allows for the possibility of future expansion and the combination of units.
