In October 2012, a corner of the Colorado Convention Center was transformed into the 2012 Idea House - a platform to highlight and demonstrate the latest trends in senior living design and aging services technology.
In partnership with LeadingAge, THW Design built on the success of the original Idea House, first conceived in 2009. That first iteration was guided by the principles of aging in place, technology in design, and sustainable design. This year, the focus of the 2012 house remained true to those original values, but also to two new guiding principles: affordability and flexibility. To better demonstrate these ideals, we developed an inspiring home-like setting, complete with a kitchen, dining room, living room, and four styles of resident suites. We're proud of our efforts and look forward to working with LeadingAge next year in Dallas.
