The mission of the AIA Design for Aging (DFA) Knowledge Community is to foster design innovation and disseminate knowledge necessary to enhance the built environment and quality of life for an aging society. This includes relevant research on characteristics, planning and costs associated with innovative design for aging. In addition, DFA provides outcome data on the value of these design solutions and environments.

Orchard Cove is a continuing care retirement center (CCRC) that was designed 20 years ago in a modern architectural vocabulary that has enabled it to stand apart from the more traditional senior environments of its day.
Orchard Cove embarked on a repositioning and renovation project of the building's existing common spaces to update their high-end image and better promote their strategic business model for wellness and healthy living. #DesignforAgingKnowledgeCommunity #CaseStudies #OrchardCove #SpecialProjects #DiMellaShaffer #DFA #BestPractices #DFAR12
