Creating households. The house is divided into two parts to create two families of 10. The focal point of the household is the residential style kitchen that is divided into two sections, one for staff and one for residents.

A place to call home. Beautiful details such as tall windows, exterior stone and accent siding, decorative molding and high level trim details, French doors, custom cabinetry and built-in bookshelves provide warmth and comfort of home.

Throughout this project, Nor-Son acted with the professionalism and enthusiasm for getting things done right that we have seen in every project we have done together. More than that though, the team went above and beyond to really understand the needs of the memory care population who will call this building home...This led to a final product that truly exceeded our expectation. It has the beauty and comfort of a home while still functionally catering to the very specific needs of our memory care population.
