Senior Living

Senior living design is especially rich and rewarding work: these projects touch the lives of families in the most intimate way, creating living environments that directly contribute to a loved one’s comfort, happiness and quality of life. Yet there’s still so much more we can do. At SmithGroup, we’re pioneering a new standard. It celebrates living at every stage, and erases age-old boundaries that separate and isolate. We’re partnering with our clients to create new and inspiring models of care that are more responsive to residents’ needs, flexible to market demands, focused on holistic wellness, and engaged with the broader community. They’re innovative designs with an appeal that is ageless.

SmithGroup creates senior living communities in the U.S., China and a growing number of other international markets. Across our global network of offices, we unite experts in gerontology, housing, urban design, mixed use and healthcare to offer clients a fully integrated approach to design and development.

The Trousdale SmithGroup

The Trousdale

As industry leaders in designs for the aging, SmithGroup has served as a trusted advisor to senior-living owners, operators and developers for more than three decades. You likely wouldn’t recognize any of these projects as the work of SmithGroup. Rather, each reflects the unique characteristics of its market and its potential user groups, with a design specifically tailored to each client’s mission and vision. Success in senior living hinges on getting these nuances just right.

Our specialized Senior Living team brings unmatched knowledge in every aspect of the continuum of care, along with a proven track record of maximizing marketability and return on investment. And it all comes together in a community that is efficient, welcoming and beautiful.
