Let there be light: the Farrow designed Norwich seniors housing community’s sunburst radial building floor plan and varied ceiling heights, is all about connecting with the changing nature, direction, and quality of light throughout the day and seasons. 

The building wraps, embraces and opens onto a variety of inward and outward oriented common exterior courtyards, gardens, verandas and terrace areas. 

The design continues Farrow’s build strategy that focuses on enhancing ‘health span’ not just ‘life span’; creating holistic living conditions where we can flourish and prosper, versus merely surviving day to day.

 The full range of design factors that influence our total health extend beyond the state of our physical well-being, beyond ecological health, to include qualities of place that affect our state of mind and a sense of coherence.
