From its blended Spanish Revival and Mission styles to its traditional kiva-style lobby fireplace to our earthen pigment-inspired color palette, White Cliffs feels like a warm hug.
Our goal was to create a familiar, resort-like experience that connects White Cliffs to its surrounding environment while sheltering its residents. White stucco walls, hand-hewn wood beams, wrought-iron lighting, and clay roofing tiles bring in outside architectural elements, tying interior with exterior spaces and honoring the Southwest’s diverse cultures. Taking design cues from the broader landscape, our color palette for White Cliffs is warm, low-contrast, and soothing, filled with natural whites, terra cottas, adobe clays, and other organic pigments.
From their first few minutes at White Cliffs, residents and visitors feel welcomed. In the main assisted-living building, the hacienda-inspired lobby—a shared living room—is anchored by a traditional kiva-style fireplace and elevated by striking box-beam ceilings, entrance archways, and rustic wood trim. With its high ceilings and arched windows, the adjacent bright, inviting library is flooded with natural light. These elegant, comfortable rooms are designed for true relaxing.
Further into the assisted living building, a bistro, barber shop and salon, fitness room, theatre for movie screenings, and a game room with poker tables, shuffleboard, and pool tables add to the hospitality-inspired environment. A shared kitchen links both buildings, clustered by full-service dining rooms. In the memory care building, activity rooms and interactive artwork encourage residents to engage with their environment, caregivers, and visitors, while a private inner courtyard, nostalgic photography, and lots of natural light create a comfortable and peaceful environment.
With the simplicity and intentionality of our design to highlight truly special moments, White Cliffs remains a timelessly beautiful expression of what’s possible for senior living.
