Original & Addition
In 1978, Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture designed the first-ever “from-scratch” senior center, which opened in the city of Englewood. It was the pioneer of senior centers, so popular that shortly after opening, it became apparent that an addition would be needed. Over the years, the programs and activities have changed, demonstrating the way active agers stay fit and engaged. The outdoor shuffleboard court was replaced by a basketball hoop; fitness classes now see the same levels of demand as art classes and card games.
The new addition includes a gymnasium, fitness center, meeting rooms and computer lab—reflecting the developing needs and wants of the senior community.
