Senior Housing News Architecture & Design Awards are starting to come in for a variety of categories. The Awards program, in its sixth year, recognizes excellence by celebrating construction and renovation projects that improve the lives of seniors through innovative senior housing architecture.

Participants have until October 31, 2018, to submit their entries, which will be judged by a panel of senior living industry experts. Entries will be evaluated on several criteria, including design, aesthetics, community integration, amenities and lifestyle enrichment. Each year, more than 80 organizations enter their communities in the SHN Architecture & Design Awards and are recognized for their unique approaches to senior living design.

Why should you enter your new community or renovation project?

  1. Win a professionally judged competition by industry experts
  2. Get your new development and construction in front of SHN’s readers that include professionals in senior living and serving the industry
  3. Gain exposure globally for your project through editorial coverage and social media
  4. Celebrate the success of the project with your partners in development such as the architects, designers, engineers, interior decorators and others
