The historic 1926 First National Bank and Lima Trust building, renamed as 43 Town Square, is located at the corner of West Market Street and North Main Street at 43 Town Square in Lima, Ohio. The 102,000-square-foot building was previously used as a bank, retail space, and offices, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Designed by Weary & Alford of Chillicothe, Illinois, the building is characterized by its Commercial Style elements and features a limestone façade with limestone details typical of the Renaissance Revival. 

The goal was to convert the magnificent 12-story building into mixed-income family housing and commercial retail space.

Rehabilitation inside the building included maintenance and conservation of many historic design features including: plaster walls and ceilings; wood doors and trim; stone walls, wainscoting, and flooring; original leaded-glass windows; and numerous ornamental stairs and railings.

The historic Director’s Room’s original features were restored. The space is now a community space for residents of 43 Town Square.

In addition to the extensive rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of the interior, the exterior of the building was also restored. Exterior work included:

  • Introduction of a covered pedestrian walkway connecting to the adjacent parking garage.
  • Isolated masonry repairs including repointing, replacement of cracked brick, and stone patching.
  • Full restoration of cast iron and bronze windows.

Our 2019 Summer Intern Reflects on Experience at Perspectus Architecture

Perspectus Architecture’s 2019 Summer Intern, Robbie

August 2019 – Summer is drawing to a close and so is Robbie’s time as our summer intern. But before he returns to Kent State University, we asked him a few questions on his experience he had as an intern here at Perspectus.

What were your responsibilities?

I was responsible for the graphical plans used in various AIA and related submissions, including AIA Ohio Design Awards, AIA Akron Design Awards, SHPO Preservation Awards, and the EFA Remodel and Renovation Award.

I worked with our marketing team to deliver graphics for a marketing booklet associated to our Mansfield Art Center project.

I completed construction documents for two of our GSA projects.

I got to be part of the design team for the new Southwest General Health Center Endoscopy Renovation and Expansion project by attending meetings with the user groups and contractor and working on the design itself.

I was responsible for the existing field measurements for our Summa Health Geriatric Impatient Floor Renovation project.

I have also been able to help develop physical models for the Summa parking garage façade and another VA project.

What was your day-to-day like?

My day-to-day consisted of working with one or multiple design teams on various projects (the ones I listed in the previous question). I would come in and check for emails or instructions from within or outside the office. I would then work on my tasked assignments which could include working independently or with a group. I generally would work with our marketing team, design director, or government projects team. However, I did get the chance to work with a couple other teams as well. My day consisted of asking a lot of questions and being as collaborative as I could, asking for guidance, advice, or opinions.  

What was your favorite part of the experience?

My favorite part of the experience was getting the opportunity to work with our South West Endoscopy Renovation team as I got a chance to provide input on the design direction of a project, as well as the opportunity to get a thorough understanding of the design process. Specifically attending meetings and understanding the relationship between the “Architect” and the client and contractor. Also including evaluating existing conditions and working with a team to make design decisions.

What did you value most in your experience?

I learned a lot about this profession in my experience here, and all the little details and key points will be appreciated now and in the future. But the best thing I got out of this experience was being able to confidently know I am going to love being an architect in the future. The scariest thing about choosing your career is knowing whether you are going to be happy doing it for a long time. This experience has shown me how right I was in picking this career path. I have had a great opportunity to understand how working in an architecture firm is and I couldn’t be more grateful to know that I made the right choice for myself.  

What was the funniest moment you experienced here?

The funniest moment was staging photos for the CDC East Project. It was a great time of enjoying the new space and joking around with the acting. Specifically, Bernard role playing as a patient.

Describe your summer experience in 3 words or short phrases.

Exciting. Tea. Confidence.

Why should developers prioritize the reuse of old buildings? What are the biggest challenges facing historic preservation today?

Continue reading to learn answers to those questions and more, including a paranormal experience.


Elizabeth Corbin Murphy, FAIA
Principal

What role does technology play in preservation?


Alice Sloan, Associate AIA
Historic Preservation Specialist

How did you end up specializing in historic preservation?

My parents instilled a love of history in me from a very young age. I grew up vacationing in the southern United States touring historic sites and battlefields and developed an appreciation of historic homes in particular.

What is your historic place to visit?

What do you think is the purpose of historic preservation?

What can we learn from tragic burning of the Cathedral Notre Dame Paris?

Thorough documentation in the form of photographs and measured drawings is essential for our most significant buildings. 3-D laser scanning and photogrammetry should be utilized.

What are the biggest challenges in preservation today?


Sean Stewart
Interior Design, Preservation

What is the project you are most proud of and why?

What is your favorite historic place to visit?

What do you think is the purpose of historic preservation?

The purpose of Historical Preservation is to preserve sites, structures, or districts that had an impact on history. To me, it is the practice of preserving and rehabilitating old historic structures so that they are economically stable in today’s world.

Why should developers prioritize the reuse of old buildings?


Dalton Kline
Interior Design, Preservation

How did you end up specializing in historic preservation?

What is your favorite historic place to visit?

It’s a tie between New Orleans and the basement of any historic building. I love New Orleans because it is a true blending of dissimilar and potent cultures.

I love basements because they are often the last thing altered in a historic building. So, that means that they are often the closest thing to original left in a building. Basements are dirty, cold, damp and dark. It’s the absolute best place to go.

Have you ever had a paranormal experience working on a project?

What do you think is the purpose of historic preservation?

To preserve history to ensure the survival and growth of our heritage.

What is your vision for the future of the historic preservation movement?

Why should developers prioritize reuse of old buildings?

Because age is an asset, not a hindrance. Viewing age as a hindrance makes for terrible design and a disappointing life.

What can we learn from tragic burning of the Cathedral Notre Dame Paris?


Martha Ross, RA
Senior Project Director

What is your favorite historic place to visit?

Copenhagen as the city has maintained most of its historic fabric by re-purposing the interiors and by doing so has maintained the character of the city from the past but promoted the usefulness of the city for the present.

What is something new you learned this week?

A Johnson Glass House + a Wright Overhang + a 1960’s Fleischman school entrance does not = a compatible addition to a 1889-1922 building!

Why should developers prioritize the reuse of old buildings?

What can we learn from the tragic burning of the Cathedral Notre Dame Paris?

Prospect Yard: Paying Homage to Cleveland’s Automotive History

Prospect Yard Rendering
Rendering of Prospect Yard, coming soon

Once upon a time, Cleveland was known as the epicenter of the automotive industry. By the early 20th century, Cleveland was home to seven major car manufacturers and added many industry innovations, including the spark ignition, flexible steering column, and various engine types. This formative period in Cleveland’s automotive manufacturing heyday was also when Frank E. Stuyvesant established the Stuyvesant Motor Co. and later became the primary Cleveland distributor for the merged Hudson-Stuyvesant Motor Car Company. Such an enterprise required a facility that could sell and service these high-end vehicles, which is where our story begins. 

Located on Prospect Avenue within Downtown Cleveland’s current “Campus District” stands the historic former Stuyvesant Motor Company building. Constructed in 1917, the building was originally built as a sales showroom, service center, garage, and storage facility for the manufacturer’s cars. Prior to the eventual dominance of the “big three” (Ford, Chrysler, General Motors), the Stuyvesant Motor Co. embodies the shift from small, local automotive manufacturer to the larger assembly-line based corporations whose legacy remains in today’s brands. Within a local framework, the building significantly contributed to the manufacturing, service, and support of automobiles, and represents the rise and decline of small, independent auto manufacturers in Cleveland. Expansion of the four-story building to its existing five stories in 1919 underscores the significance of this company as other local manufacturers failed. 

After the Great Depression, the Stuyvesant Motor Company Building became home to various other businesses associated with the automobile industry and service functions until the late 1930s. The building was then occupied by the Coast Guard, the U.S. Government and even a print shop until it sat vacant for decades.

Today, the historic property is undergoing a substantial rehabilitation to begin its new life as Prospect Yard, scheduled to be completed early this summer. The adaptive reuse project started out as a conversion to “market rate” housing. The developer recognized that many Cleveland residents were being displaced by the volumes of new work downtown and lack of affordable housing options in the area. The project then became “income eligible” housing to offer affordable options to those in the service industries who are essential to the life of Cleveland’s retail, hospitality, and even health care industries.

The open, industrial layout of the Stuyvesant Motor Co. building lends itself well to its rebirth as housing. It also serves as a prime example of how historic preservation and adaptive reuse can address the housing affordability crisis occurring in cities nationwide. Additionally, the original and restored features of the building give the apartments a high-end, industrial loft feel not often accessible to residents in modern affordable housing developments.

Among the restored features are the original car lift elevator, covered underground parking once used for car storage, exposed interior concrete columns, and joist and slab ceilings. Throughout the building, original exterior masonry materials, including window sills, brick pilasters, and stone ornament remain intact.

Under construction: The original giant steel sash windows flood the new apartment units with natural light and views of Downtown Cleveland.

Arguably, the most striking feature of the entire project is the giant steel sash windows framing views of the Cleveland skyline and flooding the apartments with natural light.

The original features and structure of Prospect Yard make it a unique property steeped in local history. In its new role, The Stuyvesant Motor Company building retains the rich history and memorable characteristics of Cleveland’s automobile industry. 

Stay tuned for more details and updates on the completion of Prospect Yard. In the meantime, check out our other historic preservation work

Wayne Agency Co. Building Awarded at Cleveland Restoration Society’s Celebration of Preservation

May 23, 2019 – The annual Celebration of Preservation awards took place at the beautifully restored Ohio Theater last night! The event, hosted by AIA Cleveland/Akron and the Cleveland Restoration Society, recognizes outstanding historic preservation projects throughout the region. Perspectus Historic Architecture and building owner Keith Saffles of Crooked River Holdings were honored with the “Main Street Rehabilitation” award for their work on the Wayne Agency Building in Cuyahoga Falls.

When the Wayne Agency Building was originally constructed in 1922, its prominent Front Street address positioned it right along the main artery of commerce for downtown Cuyahoga Falls. In the late 1970s, Front Street was converted into a pedestrian mall, and the building, along with the rest of the block, fell victim to vacancies as businesses flocked to increasingly popular indoor malls.

The historic rehabilitation of The Wayne Agency Building was only one component of a much larger community effort by the city of Cuyahoga Falls to stimulate economic development and bring new retail to the Downtown Historic District. Building owner Keith Saffles is committed to the growth of the city and has filled the building with local Cuyahoga Falls small-business tenants. The newly restored first floor retail spaces are currently occupied by the Yum Yum Sweet Shop, Pav’s Creamery and Good Co. Salon. The spaces on the upper floor are now home to a music school and various business offices.

The overwhelming success of the building’s restoration has inspired a cascade of restoration and redevelopment projects on historic Front Street, which has since been restored to its original use as the main thoroughfare of historic downtown Cuyahoga Falls.

Perspectus Welcomes Summer Architectural Intern Robbie Eberhart

Perspectus Architecture - New Hire Intern - Robbie Eberhart

May 2019 – We’re excited to welcome our new summer architectural intern, Robbie Eberhart, to the team!

Robbie is a rising senior of the Kent State University Class of 2020 where he studies architecture. We asked Robbie five questions to help everyone get to know him.

What about architecture excites you?

The fact that a field of study and work can influence so many people in such dynamic ways is inspiring.

The part I find most interesting is the ability to positively affect the communities involved with the projects. Not often does everyone get a chance to impact people’s lives directly every day, but architecture is the perfect medium to allow your creative interests and ideas improve the people you work with.

Who is your favorite architect?

I don’t have a specific favorite architect; however, my favorite architecture firm is Diller Scofidio and Renfro (DS + R). They do very interesting work and their design process uses amazing graphics and figural strategies that inspire the work I hope to do one day.

What are you looking forward to as you begin your internship here at Perspectus?

As I take my first step into learning about becoming a professional architect, I am excited to learn about how a firm interacts with clients, and how many different ways you can work on design in a firm environment.

I am interested in the relationship between architecture and people, so I hope to learn all I can about how the design process works by joining the client and firm relationship together to tackle a project.

I am also interested to learn about all the design strategies and modes explored in the professional setting. You can only learn so much in the academic setting, so I hope to be exposed to the many ways I haven’t seen yet.

What do you hope to do after you graduate?

After I graduate with my bachelor’s degree in Architecture, I intend on pursuing a dual master’s degree in both architecture and business. Kent State University offers a dual mastery program that I hope to accomplish.

After I finish school, I want to work somewhere that I can have a lasting impact on the communities I serve, and maybe one day open and run my own practice.

People would be surprised if they knew…

People would be surprised if they knew that I care about superheroes more than my well-being. I follow Marvel Comics unconditionally, and I could tell you anything about the Marvel Comic Universe that you want to know.

My favorite marvel hero is “Iron Man”, but my favorite superhero in general is “The Flash” (from DC Comics). I don’t own any physical comic book collections, but there are digital collections online that I follow and subscribe to.

Residential Memory Care Facility Design – 4 Strategies for Providing Person-Centered Care

By Jim Wallis, AIA, EDAC, NCARB, IIDA
Principal and Senior Living Studio Lead


The U.S. senior population is rising, and so is the projected number of Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.  America’s 65-and-older population is expected to nearly double by the year 2050 to 83.7 million with an estimated 13.8 million living with Alzheimer’s disease.

A recent boom in senior housing construction means senior living providers are facing more competition, especially among the memory care segment. With more choices available to residents, memory care providers need to provide a therapeutic environment to support a person-centered care model unique to this segment of the senior living market.

Each design strategy should support the implementation of person-centered care, providing residents a dignified, comfortable, functioning environment.

But first, it would be helpful to define what person-centered care is.

Defining person-centered care

Person-centered care is a way of thinking about and providing care that places emphasis on the resident experience. Maintaining selfhood is central to this model of care – enabling residents to continue the rhythms of daily life and live as independently as possible as the disease progresses. Person-centered care shifts the environment for those living with cognitive impairments from that of an institutional care setting to a resident-focused care setting.

1. Unique environmental needs of people with dementia

First and foremost, it is key to understand what dementia means and the unique environmental needs of residents with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Dementia is not a specific disease. It is an umbrella term that describes a group of symptoms associated with the loss of cognitive skills – memory, thinking and reasoning – and behavioral abilities severe enough to interfere with that person’s daily life and activities.  There are multiple types of dementias, but the most widely known is Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias do not progress in a linear fashion; therefore, each person experiences Alzheimer’s and related dementias differently.

Therapeutic environments rooted in the person-centered care model of evidence-based design are shown to reduce negative behaviors associated with the disease progression such as wandering, elopement risk, agitation and anxiety.

2. Smaller groups and spaces

Large spaces and groups of people typical of senior living communities can be agitating for residents with cognitive impairment. Reducing spaces to a residential scale and using a household model can alleviate many common agitations.

A household model reflects the familiar elements of a home and includes a living room, residential kitchen, dining room space, private resident rooms with bathrooms, activity areas, and a secured outdoor courtyard. An open plan with clear, familiar room-to-room circulation aids in wayfinding and provides environmental cues as to the intended use for the space.

When Perspectus worked with Brookdale Senior Living at its Atrium Way location in Jacksonville, Florida, we were tasked with renovating an existing assisted living wing into a memory care unit utilizing the household model.

The building was originally designed with a large, two-story central community space that the resident rooms opened up to. The new design reduced the height of the ceilings and defined small spaces within the large existing space to create a more familiar residential scale. 

3. Opportunities for social engagement

It’s important to create a community of the right size. The ideal size of a household is 10 to 14 residents. Smaller groups provide more opportunities for residents to interact with each other and caretakers and participate in familiar daily routines. 

The design strategy should include spaces of multiple scales to allow for different types of activities. This variety of spaces and scales serves multiple purposes: it allows staff more spaces to program activities that cater to the residents’ interests and needs and gives residents control of desired level of social interaction and privacy.

For instance, the design may include smaller alcoves and seating areas for more intimate social interactions and more public spaces such as a living room or a secured outdoor courtyard to accommodate larger group activities. 

Another design feature that promotes social engagement is an open, residential country kitchen located directly adjacent to the dining room. The residential kitchen enhances activities of daily living, creates opportunity for structured programming such as baking or routine household chores, and provides sensory stimulation from cooking aromas which can help stimulate appetite.

Decentralized staff areas maintain a residential environment and encourage more social interaction between staff and residents. Identifiable nurse stations are a necessity in institutional environments, but you wouldn’t want to see a nurse station in your home. Designing the residential kitchen with features that discreetly double as a nurse station facilitates staff interaction without disrupting activities of daily living. 

4. Color, lighting and materials

Lighting and material selection are critical design elements in senior living and memory care environments. It is very common for elderly persons, especially those with cognitive impairments, to experience several age-related vision issues including difficulties distinguishing colors, depth perception, and sensitivity to contrast and glare.

The most common lighting problem for memory care residents is that the space is not bright enough, causing agitation. Illumination should be increased to improve visibility and offset contrast sensitivity.

Another common light-related agitator is glare. Materials and surfaces that are not glossy and reflective can help eliminate glare.

The use of color and materials should work both to create a calming environment as well as increase contrast. Flooring color should provide complimentary contrast to the wall color. If a pattern is used, it should be kept simple. Too much contrasting pattern can cause confusion, as memory care residents may see certain areas within the pattern as voids and step around them.

Color contrast also aids in visual cueing. For instance, memory care residents can have difficulty recognizing the need to use the bathroom as the disease progresses. Floor and wall colors that contrast with the toilet help it stand out.

Thoughtful choice in color, lighting and materials are critical to reducing agitated behaviors and increase resident well-being and autonomy.

Dignified living

Person-centered care design strategies for memory care residents are about facilitating as normal a life as possible in an environment that is truly a home. Through a heightened understanding of the disease and utilizing a holistic, person-centered care approach, memory care facilities can provide residents with a dignified experience that nurtures their mind, body and spirit.

[Question] You and Eileen Nacht will be presenting on the Laurel Lake Senior Living Community at the Environments for Aging conference. What can attendees hope to learn from your presentation?

[Jim] Our presentation is focused on a Post-Occupancy Evaluation (POE) we completed for the Laurel Lake Retirement Community Center for Healthy Living project that the community has implemented. The results of the POE show us how successfully the design has transformed the residential community to support a whole-person wellness philosophy engaging the mind, body and spirit. We’ll define what a POE is, break down the metrics we established, and identify the criteria for measuring and examining the design outcomes. Finally, we plan to share insights gained from the results of the POE and applications to future re-positioning design projects.

We’ll also illustrate the concept of centers for healthy living as active lifestyle communities and their benefits to the aging population. Evolving research shows wellness focused activities are KEY to aging people keeping their health, their mental skills and their quality of life. We’ll explore the role of environmental design in promoting the seven dimensions of wellness.

[Q] What trends in senior living design do you anticipate taking off?

[J] Centers for healthy living are definitely a trend for the new senior population and the next generation of older adults that are more active and health conscious. A center for healthy living is an approach to wellness design based on the concept of engaging residents with enhanced person-centered care. The design integrates programs and amenities that support the seven dimensions of wellness: emotional, environmental, intellectual, occupational, physical, social and spiritual.

[Q] You just achieved your Evidence-Based Design Accreditation and Certification. How will this certification affect the design of your projects?

[J] Evidence-based design is really about the design process and implementing design concepts that achieve the best possible outcomes. I look to inspire our project designs and Perspectus with a design culture that is person-centered and more focused on the desired outcomes for healthcare and senior living projects.

[Q] If you could give one piece of advice, what would it be?

[J] If you have a passion and enjoy what you do for a living, then you will never work a day in your life!

[Q] You can only bring two things to a deserted island. What do you bring? Oh, and you can’t bring a boat.

[J] Alcohol and a Satellite Phone.
