Shiraz Senior Housing
The trademark style of ROEM Development has been to design and construct projects that add to the quality of the residing community. To this end, the architectural detailing and landscaping is designed to echo the Spanish style elements in the surrounding neighborhood. Shiraz has two formal garden courts with raised fountains and teak benches creating intimate spaces for the seniors to socialize and enjoy the outdoors. The community room has a strong relationship to the courtyard and adjacent park that create outdoor and indoor public spaces. To complement the residing neighborhood, the street elevations are two stories high and have patios with pedestrian paths that lead out to the sidewalk weaving the building to the neighborhood.
Stucco finish, tile roof with wood corbels and fountains give the development a higher quality feel. All units have balconies or patios providing private open space in addition to the formal garden courts. Other amenities include a community room with lounge area, community kitchen and a computer learning center. Together the site and the building come together to generate senior housing that is affordable yet enhances the quality of life of the residents and the residing neighborhood.
