Cooking Up Community Resilience

Page is a proponent of designing for resilient communities and was pleased to see that Interior Design Magazine recognized that element in the new Ottobock North America Headquarters project. The publication spotlighted work from top-ranked 2018 Interior Design Giants and commented:

"Research shows that social connection is essential to human health... The kitchen has always been the heart of the home, but now it's [also] becoming the hub of the workplace, the destination wellness spa, and even hospice facilities designed so families of patients can cook favorite meals together. Call it social sustenance." 

Page leaders have previously explained, "Designers have traditionally considered resilience in the built environment as it relates to environmental catastrophes such as floods, hurricanes and earthquakes. Now, that way of thinking is expanding to examine the influence of the built environment on brain health, emotional and physical well-being, empathy for others and connection to one’s community." 

The firm recently hosted a discussion on that very topic with clients from recent projects that was led by the editor-in-chief of Metropolis Magazine, a national publication that examines contemporary life through design, architecture, interior design and more.
