Environments for Aging is pleased to announce the winners of our Inaugural Dining Competition, a special awards program honoring the best dining spaces in senior living.
EFA invited design firms and communities to submit their best dining spaces in senior living. We challenged readers to submit:
– Projects that offer a variety of venues and choices in settings for residents, families, and staff
– Spaces that promote resident engagement and contribute to an exceptional dining experience
– Dining venues that offer a high-design aesthetic while being appropriate for the population served
– Effective space design and planning to support dining operations in both front- and back-of-house function and flow
An elite jury of architects, designers, consultants, and providers reviewed all projects and choose Platinum, Gold, and Silver award winners. These winning projects were featured in the Summer issue of EFA. All projects submitted are also included in a special e-book available for download below. This e-book includes editorial contributions, expanded coverage of winning projects, and a gallery of all dining submissions.
