The Stayton at Museum Way was built in 2011 with D2 principal David Dillard as lead architect.

One of D2 Architecture’s recent projects, The Stayton at Museum Way in Fort Worth, Texas, has received an Award of Excellence in the 2013 Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) Senior Living by Design competition. The continuing care retirement community was completed for Senior Quality Lifestyle Corporation in 2011.

"ALFA is an enduring and well-respected organization in the world of Senior Living. We are delighted to receive such a prestigious award," said D2 President David Dillard. "This recognition for The Stayton was particularly rewarding because it marks the third award-winner I have designed for our client, SQLC. That says a great deal about the client as well."

The Stayton at Museum Way is an 11-story tower located in the Museum District just west of downtown Fort Worth, Texas and exemplifies one of the major trends in senior housing – urban, vertical living in the heart of the city. The Stayton is comprised of 180 Independent Living apartments and amenity spaces, including a full spa, indoor pool, a wellness center, a grand hall, a top-floor dining venue, and an elegant bistro on the ground level. It also includes over 100 rooms for various levels of care including Assisted Living, Memory Support, and Skilled Care.

ALFA’s annual Senior Living By Design competition honors excellent design concepts in senior living. This year ALFA awarded one Grand prize, three Awards of Excellence, and three Citations.

Through their Sleepover Project, D2 architects experience the facilities they design through the eyes and handicaps of a senior, allowing them to design for real life. D2 Architecture has been designing senior living facilities for almost 20 years and is a recognized leader in the field.
