Cypress Glen Retirement Community - Cafe and Pub Addition
Services provided on this project:
Interior Design Overview:
Cypress Glen Retirement Community serves as the only Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in Greenville, North Carolina. Situated on more than 95 acres, the community allows residents to age in place with access to assisted living, memory care and long-term care. Cypress Glen engaged RDG to design the renovation of its main cafe, dining and living spaces, as well as the addition of a large, open, multi-functional gathering place with pub, dining area and other seating areas. RDG's resulting design uses lighting, color and texture to create vibrant destinations where residents can come together for programmed events and spontaneous/organic gatherings.
Furniture Fixtures and Equipment Overview:
A significant goal for the 7,620-SF project was to create large and flexible dining areas that feel intimate and inviting and offer a sense of place. Decorative lighting, combined with deep, monochromatic accent colors help set the mood and bring warmth to the spaces. A variety of flooring and ceiling patterns, partition wall with decorative screens and movable planters create flexibility and allow for a variety of uses. Large communal tables, soft lounge seating arrangements and the pub's serpentine bar offer hospitality-forward places where residents can come to listen to music, play games, drink coffee and sample draft beers.
