Retirement Resort Design

Retirement Resort Design

The competitive nature of the senior housing market is making it absolutely necessary for retirement resorts to have unique and distinctive amenities to attract new residents. In order for a retirement resort to be successful, it needs to be well conceived and designed, providing the perfect retreat for the over 55 community. A professional and experienced commercial architectural firm, like Baldwin Architectural Group, has the knowledge and expertise to design or remodel retirement resorts to create a comfortable environment.

Important Amenities and Considerations for Designing a Retirement Community

The 55+ community is very particular when it comes to choosing a retirement resort. Most boomers are looking for an active adult community to make new friends, spend time learning new hobbies, and delve into their favorite pastimes. They’re seeking a resort style community for an easier, more exciting life. It’s typical for active living communities to offer a variety of social opportunities, including:

  • Tennis courts, golf courses, spas, and fitness facilities
  • Restaurants, fine dining, and on-site convenient stores
  • Clubhouses, marinas, pools, and more

Additionally, these buyers tend to seek out the highest finishes for living the life of luxury. Although many buyers are looking to downsize, luxurious exterior and interior features are still a must:
  • Spacious, ground level move-in ready homes or apartments
  • Granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and modern fixtures
  • Warm color schemes with lots of natural light
  • Beautiful park like setting with walking paths
  • Ample, lighted parking
  • Security with 24 hour surveillance
  • An excellent, convenient location

Low Maintenance & Energy Efficient Living in Retirement Resorts

An important benefit for many retirees as they are looking to downsize is the opportunity of maintenance free living. Many seniors enjoy not having to worry about taking care of their grass, yard work, or snow removal, so they have more time to relax, spend time with friends and families, and enjoy the resort’s variety of social activities.

Energy efficiency is also important to retirees looking to move to active communities, as more seniors are seeking homes that are equipped with the latest in energy-efficient features. Homes that are Certified Green with greater insulation, energy saving appliances, and water saving plumbing fixtures, are appealing to retirees. Since retirees are typically on a fixed budget, the cost savings associated with green energy improvements is also an attractive benefit. As a building and design expert, the Baldwin Architectural Group can suggest green improvements that satisfy senior needs.
