Belmont Village Senior Living, an American company specialized in the care of the elderly and retirement homes, has opened its first community in Mexico. Located in the capital of the country, it offers specific programs to care for its residents such as assisted living and memory care, as well as a gym specially equipped for seniors; a beauty salon; gardens and terraces, rehabilitation and therapy programs, among other services.
Belmont Village Senior Living Santa Fe has two towers, one that includes 10 floors where the doctor's offices and the restaurant are located, and a second one with 133 apartments, and a hotel placed at the upper levels of the boulding, On the ground floor, there are several retail spaces. This tower is also connected to a hospital by a pedestrian bridge.
The Mexican firm Metra Desarrolladora developed a contemporary architectural style for this project where rectangles and orthogonal figures predominate as a response to the surroundings of this multipurpose complex.
The lighting was designed by the architect Joaquín Jamaica to meet the specific needs of the elderly, using LED luminaires, providing with this greater energy savings. The furniture for this residential complex was designed and manufactured by the Mexican company Marbol Industria Mueblera, with the idea in mind that people could feel as if they were living in their own homes.
Other decorative elements found along the residence were designed and developed by Mexican artisans from around the country.
