The Happy Senior service flats are located at the heart of ‘Humanicity’, an innovative district in Northern-France, Lille. The building is part of a residential area next to a kinder garden, a paramedical training institute and a nursing home. Its inhabitants enjoy an environment on a human scale, a "Living lab" conducive to meetings, associations and good living for all generations. The innovative architecture brings light, sobriety and beautiful materials to offer a quality living environment, in the middle of an agricultural environment.
The Happy Senior residence consists of 126 senior apartments. Each service flat has a large living room with fully equipped open kitchen, a bathroom with walk-in shower and up to three bedrooms. Bright, functional, with neat decoration, the apartments are adapted to the needs of the elderly and promote their independence (grab bars, raised toilets, wide doorways). Residents choose to furnish their accommodation with their personal furniture, or can also buy it. Each configuration is unique, each one chooses the surface and the exposure which correspond best to their desires.
For the flooring of all apartments and fitness area, Pergo premium laminate Modern Plank was chosen for its performances: a real water resistant, easy to maintain durable and sustainable flooring solution. The Farmhouse Oak design is a dark oak design where perfection and imperfection go hand in hand: virtually indistinguishable from real wood. This laminate floor comes with silk matt finish and true-to-nature cracks and knots thanks to a rustic surface texture that accentuates details such as cracks, knots and scraped effects. The feeling of wooden planks is further enhanced by bevels along all four edges.
