Aksarben Senior Living
When Hospitality Impacts Health
The Aksarben Senior Living Center was designed to meet the needs of a variety of residents, from those with mobility concerns to those with cognitive impairment. The design includes settings that encourage exploration, movement and social interaction, all vital to maintaining good health and quality of life. The team combined features of a modern home with the necessary elements of an assisted care facility to create an aesthetically appealing, supportive environment that was as comfortable for visitors as it is for the residents. High contrast colors and textures including cool white walls paired with warm wood ceilings create visual interest while helping visually impaired residents.
Handrails, periodic touch-down spaces, and efforts to minimize distance between rooms, ensure residents with mobility concerns can move around with relative ease and independence.

Callahan will be joining us for the summer as an interior design intern. She will be entering her senior year at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln pursuing her degree in Interior Design. Remember The Sims video game series? Well, that game provided an initial spark that ignited Callahan’s passion for interior design. When she’s not in the studio, Callahan can be found working out, cooking, dining at her favorite restaurant The Blatt, walking her dogs, or binge-watching Netflix.

Nicci is one of the interior design interns that will be joining us for the summer! She is an interior design student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln who will be entering her senior year come fall of 2020. When Nicci isn’t busy laying out spaces, she enjoys time outdoors whether it be running or walking the fields at her family farm with three Australian Shepherds in-toe!

It shows in the relationships he has built and nurtured over the years. Martin has made a lasting impression in our hearts and on the landscape of Omaha and Iowa. Congratulations, Martin!
