Cambridge Manor, located in Calgary’s new University District neighborhood, is focused on administrating the highest standard of care for its residents. The four-story senior care campus includes 240 units that provide residences for independent, long-term care, and memory care living.
A center for research on aging, with ties to the University of Calgary’s Research on Aging Program, will use one wing of the facility as a “living lab” for research that will provide multidisciplinary opportunities for researchers and students. The research will look at enhancing dementia care, optimizing technology, design and service systems, transitions in care for older adults, social engagement, and falls.
The campus is connected to Maple Independent Living, a 95-unit independent living facility, via a plus-30 pedestrian walkway. This connection allows residents of both buildings to connect and share amenities.
S2 Architecture facilitated extensive functional programming and site master planning exercises to understand the needs of the residents and staff, spatial relationships, density, and massing.
The architectural firm ultimately chose Lumetta to fabricate our custom L2 Drum Pendant with a washable, antimicrobial Lumenate® outer shade in D149 Slate and a complementary D66 MT Bone inner shade to provide illumination to the corridors–giving a sense of elegance to the space.
