This month, we would like to introduce you to our talented group of architects at KPS Group, who have developed a love for Kirkwood and a desire to bring our vision for the future of Kirkwood to life.
Established in 1965, KPS Group provides architecture, interior design, planning, and related consulting services across the southeast region from their Birmingham, Alabama headquarters. We are blessed to have such a talented group right here in our own city! One Birmingham, One Kirkwood.
KPS Group has designed our beautiful new lobby and shared community spaces, and the addition of “The Overlook Cafe” in the main living area. Our “Tree Top Pub” will be a billiards room and bar where residents can meet friends and enjoy views of the Cahaba River. The current dining room will also be renovated and named “Riverside Dining”. KPS has designed a modernized lobby and entrance which we hope will create community connectedness, a place where all residents can socialize and enjoy life together.
This talented group has also worked on our brand new, state of the art Assisted Living and Memory Care Assisted Living building. This space will include large studio, one bedroom and two-bedroom apartments on both levels of care. Assisted Living will have Juliette balconies for direct access to fresh air, multiple gathering spaces, a large welcoming dining room, a beautiful terrace with views of nature and a courtyard including gas firepits and lounging areas. Memory Care Assisted Living will have their own secure courtyard located in the center of the building where residents will be able to freely walk outside and throughout the community.
Lastly, Skilled Nursing and short-term rehabilitation will be renovated to have a new direct entrance and parking for visitors. Sixteen private rooms will be moved to the second floor, complete with a new therapy gym. Which, then, will allow us to convert 32 semi-private beds into 32 private rooms. The renovation will also include new dining and activities spaces for both levels of Skilled Nursing and updates throughout.
“Our goals on every project are to provide you with a consistently positive experience working with us, to exceed your expectations with designs and services that add tangible value to your endeavors, and to create great places for people.”
We are thrilled to partner with KPS Group and can’t wait for our vision to come to life in the coming months!
