Atrium Renovation – Rolling Meadows Retirement Center

Wichita Falls, Texas

Rolling Meadows is over 25 years old and was in dire need of a fresh, updated look. Elements such as outdated carpet, fabric canopies and metal stairs dated the space. The initial scope included adding warm wood elements, updating the finishes and opening the dining room. Prior to the renovation, the Atrium lacked focus and direction. Relocating the Reception to the primary entrance allowed for more functional flow and clear wayfinding through the Lobby giving the Atrium a “Mainstreet” atmosphere. The space was completely transformed by cladding the existing columns, metal stair and railing in a traditional wood profile, as well as by tying the space together with a wainscot. All final finish selections, furniture and d├ęcor were chosen by Rolling Meadows staff, allowing them to take great ownership in deciding how the finished product should look.

Amenities in the renovated Atrium include The Royal Perk coffee bar, Dining Room, Communication Center, computer access with internet,Game Room and Knight Cap sports bar. The previously dark Dining Room received updated finishes, lighting and lost a few restricting walls allowing for a more functional layout. It is now open, airy and elegant, seating more residents without restricting maneuverability. All of the new venues are located in the Atrium which is the main area of the facility and is open 24/7.
