Lumetta’s Lighting Brightens Freedom House Alzheimer’s Care
LWDA Design Architects, a firm specializing in Architecture and Interior Design for healthcare, rehabilitation, senior living, and care, recently completed a sizeable renovation of the Blue Skies Texas Freedom House Alzheimer’s Care.
The San Antonio assisted living memory care residence is home to people living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. The redesign included the neighborhood commons, activity room, living and dining areas, lobby, chapel, and kitchens.
LWDA is known for taking on architectural projects that improve the quality of life at every level in local communities. The design agency set out to create an atmosphere that would allow for better sleeping as well as the lessening of negative behaviors that are many times associated with Dementia.
Lumetta’s luminaires were the preferred choice for a lighting solution to illuminate the areas. The fixtures were equipped to harness BIOS circadian lighting. BIOS, also utilized by NASA, infuses a blue lighting which mimics the temperature and intensity of sunlight and aids in the optimization of circadian rhythm, allowing people to be more alert and productive during the day. During the evening, the blue light ceases and as a result triggers the body to create melatonin, preparing the body for sleep.
Lumetta is proud to be part of this award-winning design. The custom created luminaires chosen to be the focal points in the infrastructure included Lumetta’s 34” Custom Drum Pendants, 18” and 23” Custom Surface Mount Drums, 23” and 34” Custom L2 Drum Pendants, and 6” x 24” Custom Acrylic Lite Pendants. This wide selection of spectacular fixtures, most of which were fitted with our washable antimicrobial Lumenate® diffusers made the environment come alive with shape, color, and illumination.
