Brookdale of Kenwood (formerly known as Karrington of Kenwood) is a 67-unit assisted living facility that incorporates a specifically designed living section for residents with dementia. The building, as a whole, was designed to provide a strong residential feel to create a sense of a real home environment. The layout of the facility encourages balance between social and private spaces with a large grand entry with a bifurcated stair, an ice-cream parlor, cafe, large dining hall and 67 bedroom units.
The architectural style lay between a blend of Victorian and Colonial; Victorian due to its ornate gable ornamentation, the slight asymmetry at the entry (with the octagonal rotunda nestled to the side of the entry portico), and multiple rooflines; and Colonial due to the simple tuscan-like columns, paned windows, arched portico. The facility includes large porches throughout the exterior as a transitional space making it more informal and inviting.
