NOMINATED BY: Pope ArchitectsPROJECT STATEMENT: Sited on 22 acres, Brio serves 55+ through all stages of care, including end of life and late-stage Alzheimer’s. The flow is intuitive; an open plan connects all residents by supporting flexible interactions.
Dining environments offer maximum choice with multiple menus and 24-hour food service. Community gardens, terraces, paths, and covered pavilions and porches draw residents outdoors. The core includes a Wellness Center that blends skilled therapy and independent fitness.
The architectural aesthetic is based on a modern farmhouse and barn style with a neutral, accented palette. Brio was full after six months.
