Our mission is to make the world a better place in which to live, work, learn and pray.  No where is this mission more important than when we tackle the design of a senior center. Residents deserve a space that fosters happiness, creativity and life-long learning. Kitchens are the heart of the home and the same can be said for dining areas in senior residences.   The dining areas are not only a place for sustenance but a place for creating essential social connections.

Here are some dining areas from the Leslie Saul & Associates portfolio:


You feel liked you have walked down Main Street and arrived at a lively bakery or coffee shop when you come upon the cafe at the Cohen Florence Levine Estates in Chelsea, Massachusetts. This is a popular gathering spot for residents who enjoy meeting up with friends for a snack and conversation.

This small residential kitchen at the Cohen Florence Levine Estates demonstrates that senior residences don’t need to be dowdy. This kitchen sports retro styled counter tops, cabinetry and flooring reminiscent of the 1950s. This hip looking kitchenette is a great spot for to make a small meal or snack. The built in table provides enough room for spreading out the newspaper or enjoying a cup of tea with a friend.


An arts & crafts influence give the dining room at the John Bertram House in  Swampscott, Massachusetts an elegant feel. This dining room looks like it belongs in a beautiful country club. Note how the room’s design makes the room feel intimate –  guests don’t feel like they are in a large dining hall.

We have a lot to say about creating engaging senior residences! Contact Leslie Saul & Associates to discuss the design of your senior residence – we work throughout the United States.
