As an initiative for the Volunteers of America, this project provides one bedroom apartments for low-income seniors in Montana’s largest city. SGB Architects employed an exterior palette of natural materials and light colors to compliment the scenic character of the region. The interior design uses responsive color and lighting cues to assist its residents with declining memory. A third floor crafts room and library above a second floor balcony provides the residents a structured program with plenty of natural light. The building layout provides a secure interior courtyard with an outstanding view of the Pryor Mountain range.
