Description

 
GMK has been has served Still Hopes for more than a decade with interior design and construction projects ranging across the Life Plan Community’s entire continuum of care. Projects have spanned spaces located on the West Columbia campus that accommodate independent living, assisted living, healthcare, skilled nursing, memory support/dementia care, physical rehabilitation, wellness services, multiple dining options, entry ways/corridors, other common areas, and administrative offices.


Our firm’s latest effort includes the recent completion of designs for Still Hopes’ newly opened Greenway Supportive Living wing that houses multiple dynamic and advanced skilled nursing neighborhoods (The Saluda, The Broad, and The Congaree) and an assisted living neighborhood (The Riverbanks apartments). Combining home-like warmth and comfort with clean, modern lines and vibrant pops of color and texture, the Greenway’s décor throughout embodies the elegance Still Hopes residents expect, while creating open, nurturing, and inspirational environments that accommodate each resident’s enhanced care needs.
