A Flagship of Senior Living

Canterfield at Forsyth is one of our flagship Senior Living projects—one that exemplifies our attention to detail and thoughtful consideration of clients and their future residents.

Aging Perfectly in Place

We worked closely with the owners to bring their vision of a well-appointed senior living campus to life, complete with a modern assisted living community with memory care wing, several upscale independent living ranches and a four story independent living apartment community. The variety of homes at Canterfield allows residents to choose the right space for where they are in life, and have plenty of options for when life requires something different.

In designing a senior living campus, we had to consider what each component needs to thrive on its own, as well as how all the separate components come together to create a beautiful, seamless feeling. Forsyth is one of the wealthiest counties in the country, so we built this community to evoke a country-club feeling, no matter if you’re in the comfortable memory care floor or the independent living resort-style pool. The idea behind all of our senior living campuses is that residents can live abundantly, age in place and get the care they need, when they need it.

Lesson Learned

Canterfield was a three-phase project that began with the assisted living building, and was completed with the independent living apartments. It was very important to us that we kept the buildings separate, while keeping them similar in style and function and that we were able to design a campus with all the bells and whistles: upscale dining facilities, wood liquor lockers, lush garden landscapes, art rooms and top-notch fitness facilities—thoughtful amenities for keeping residents happy, active and young at heart.
