Senior Housing News (SHN) is busy preparing for the newly expanded 2016 Senior Housing News Architecture & Design Awards. This year’s SHN Awards program, exclusively sponsored by Kwalu, is out to find which owners, operators, designers and architects are defining the future of senior housing.

This highly-anticipated annual awards competition returns for the fourth year to recognize cutting-edge design, excellence and quality in senior living for 2016. SHN has expanded the awards in this year to include two new categories, Student Exhibition and International Community Design. The Student Exhibition category has been added to provide architecture and design students a platform to have their conceptual works judged by industry professionals and provide a necessary link to help encourage students to pursue career options around senior housing and aging. Over the last few years, SHN has received inquiries about a category for submissions from outside of the United States that showcase innovative design strategy and implementation from foreign countries. We’ve added that category in response.

This year promises to highlight unparalleled projects, fresh innovation, and even more communities that have vastly improved the lives of seniors through design. A team of expert panelists from the senior living industry will choose this year’s winners in December.


All entries must be submitted by November 11, 2016 and in order to be considered, each project must be completed by November 1, 2016. Projects that are on the boards or still under construction prior to the November 1st deadline should enter the 2017 competition.
