Client: Elim Society

The honour that Elim bestows on the aged builds self-esteem and self-worth into their aged family members. Elim Village collaboarated effectively with ARFAi in producing architecture which promotes a sense of self-worth and dignitiy, beginning with an entrance that creates the first impression; to all the amenity spaces, architectural finishes, and exterior which speaks effectively to where the Seniors live.

Elim also responded by ensuring that the amenities and the social spaces were well-appointed and adequate to encourage and nurture an active and healthy lifestyle for the residents.

The opportunity to socialize around meals in a beautiful environment that spills outdoors into a biophilic context contributes to their health and well-being, all speaking to the honour that was bestowed upon the residents.

The most important aspect of Elim, with regards to the the honour Elim has shown their residents are the suite rooms themselves. It is ultimately the suite which the residents speak endearingly about because it is ultimately the space that each resident calls home. While all the amenities, the entrance, and the building all speak to this concept, the crown and glory of the facility is, in fact, the attention to detail in the design of the suites and the amenities that are afforded within them.

In close collaboration with ARFAi, Elim was able to effectively meet the needs within their budget and honour their Seniors with a respectable and dignity-producing environment in each of their lives.
