Veranda Living is an alzheimer facility being built in Houston, Texas.
Carlin/White Associates has designed several assisted living facilities,
senior adult living facilities, and most recently, alzheimer facilities.
The design of such facilities has become a specialty of the firm, and
one in which it differentiates itself from other architectural firms.
that specialize in this area are primarily from the institutional side
of the market: designing hospitals and nursing homes. These
facilities tend to have extremely high construction costs.
What is important
to our clients is that we design projects with an understanding of
development, and the economics that make facilities financially
When projects are
not designed from that standpoint, construction costs are often
inappropriately high, which has unfortunately contributed to the failure
of too many facilities that might still be housing our elderly.
