Denver, COSenior Housing News recently announced the winners of the 2016 Senior Housing News (SHN) Architecture & Design Awards. Two Colorado projects won top awards including CityScape at Belmar in Lakewood for Best Affordable Housing and Rosemark at Mayfair Park in Denver for Best Assisted Living project.

Senior living communities nationwide submitted their communities for consideration in the fourth annual SHN Awards, a contest that recognizes excellence by celebrating projects that improve the lives of seniors through innovative design. This year’s competition included the addition of two new project categories: Student Exhibition and International.

“With advances in technology, operations and design, this year brought truly innovative projects to senior living. As residents become more selective, senior living owners and operators are looking to design as a differentiator,” said SHN Publisher and Founder George Yedinak. “This year’s entries demonstrate the heightened competition across the sector.”

From the more than 80 organizations that entered their communities in this year’s competition, only nine projects were selected as 2016 SHN Architecture & Design Awards Winners for their unique approaches to senior living design. The competition evaluates communities through a scoring system that looks at various categories including design elements specific to each category, community integration, amenities and lifestyle features.
