Jurors for Environments for Aging’s annual Design Showcase met in Portland, Ore., Jan. 16, to determine the winners of this year’s design competition.

Forty-one projects were reviewed by the group of architects, interior designers, owners/operators, and consultants. In the end, just one rose to the top to receive the highest honor, Award of Merit, with four others earning an Honorable Mention. An additional five projects were named finalists.

The winners will be profiled in the Spring 2020 issue of EFA and celebrated during a magazine awards luncheon at the upcoming Environments for Aging Expo & Conference to be held April 26-28 in Louisville.
