V.I.S.U.A.L. I.N.G.E.N.U.I.T.Y.

As Architects we strive to be creative and trans-formative. The success and survival of our practice is based upon on our ability to create, imagine and visually transform. Our client came to us with the idea of buying an out of date colonial office building, they set a budget and allowed us to imagine the possibilities. We couldn't be more proud of the results.

A Design to Reinvent the Way We Live - A Skilled Nursing Home

It has been a while since our last post...But we have been very busy working on the latest designs!
One of these notable projects on our boards is a design which we feel will change the way you look at the future of nursing homes! A project that will have an immediate impact on residents, staff and their families!
St Mary's Care Center in Madison, Wisconsin:
On the Boards: Imagine taking a drab central therapy space in an existing nursing home and transforming it into a coffee shop, gift store and day spa! Picture the ideal space for residents to grab a delicious bakery item, or get their nails done or spend time in the sun with family grilling on the patio. We are proposing a place inside a nursing home that makes you feel comfortable, lets you forget where you are, welcomes healing social connections and truly removes the stigma. Our design is challenging the nursing home status quo! It's the type of project that makes you ask, " Why haven't we been designing nursing homes like this all along?"

Construction Complete - Elmbrook Church Renovation

Brookfield, Wisconsin

Thrive Architects worked with Elmbrook Church to solve interior space planning challenges and improve wayfinding elements throughout the building. We focused on creative ways to design engaging areas for fellowship which complemented the existing building interiors. Some of the solutions included designing information areas that were highly visible to each of the lobby (narthex) entrances, establishing coffee common spaces to improve fellowship and incorporating a welcome center which could serve as a main gathering space for after service ministries.
