At the annual Sage Awards on October 20, 2016, three Withee Malcolm Architects' projects were honored with one gold and three sliver awards. Vermont Villas received the gold in the Best 55+ Assisted Living/Special Needs Community. Lillian Court/Bloomington Grove won the silver in the same category and Sol y Mar earned silvers in both Best 55+ For Sale Community and Best 55+ Attached Home.
This year 55+ Housing Council of the Building Industry Association of Southern California celebrated 22 years of Shaping Advancements in Generational Environments (SAGE.) The annual awards honor innovative professionals, projects, and programs that have contributed to the enhancement of life for California residents age 55+.
"It is gratifying to see the broad range of our designs for senior communities recognized by the SAGE Awards," said Withee Malcolm Founding Partner Dan Withee, AIA. "There's not a single prototypical senior or a one-size-suits-all model solution. It's exciting to be a part of creating a diverse mix of residential options from amenity-rich, luxury townhomes to intergenerational, mixed-use communities to dignified housing for our most vulnerable seniors."
