Anthology at Tuckahoe

Anthology at Tuckahoe is a 150-unit upscale senior living community in Henrico, Va., a suburb of Richmond, Va. It houses independent living, assisted living, and memory care.

The community was developed to meet increasing need in the area for senior living options that allow residents to age in place by transitioning to higher levels of care while remaining in the same location.

The 142,000-square-foot project showcases a nature-inspired design highlighted by a muted color palette of soft grays, greens, and beiges; lighter and warmer woods; and accents including a floor-to-ceiling forest-themed wall mural that greets residents and visitors just inside the entrance.

The exterior aesthetic is designed to mimic the Federalist architecture of the greater Richmond area, as well.

Creating community in senior living

A social market offers a communal spot for gathering and enjoying a cup of coffee or snack and greets residents and their guests at the main entry. The space is a nod Richmond’s history as the site of one of the nation’s longest-running public markets.

That sense of community is carried through to the food offerings from local vendors as well as custom bins in the “market” that hold local produce and botanicals.

A variety of seating, from a communal table in the hub of the space to booths and lounge seating, ensures the social market can comfortably accommodate groups of all sizes as well as individual residents.

The community’s amenity spaces also include a four-season sunroom with access to an outdoor patio and green roof and an in-house theater.
