The adaptive reuse of the O.C. Haley School features 37 one and two-bedroom apartments for low-income residents ages 55 and up. Our proposal is tailored to the user group through the concepts of aging in place. Constrained by an existing, historic building, budget and regulatory agency requirements, our efforts are focused on designing the sensory elements that enhance the specific user group’s experience. Custom cabinet and door hardware, contrasting thresholds, kitchen, and lighting are designed specifically for aging in place.
