Belmont Village Albany has been nominated for the fifth-annual Senior Housing News (SHN) Architecture & Design Awards under the assisted living category. More than 80 communities nationwide submitted their new construction and renovation projects for consideration. Entrants are vying for top honors across 10 categories this year: Affordable, Assisted Living, Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), Independent Living, International, Renovation/Repositioning, Skilled Nursing / Post-Acute Care, Stand Alone Memory Care, and Student Exhibition (Architecture) and Student Exhibition (Interior Design).
Projects will be judged by a panel of industry experts who will evaluate nominees based on design and aesthetic criteria. Not only will judges analyze design elements such as color, light and landscape architecture, but they will also consider community functionality by analyzing key features that are critical to property type, such as universal design techniques. Winners will be announced December 12, 2017.
