Life Styles Inc. is a non-profit organization providing education in life skills to individuals with disabilities. The teaching style there is one that focuses on creativity and artistic expression, and the architectural design enhances that focus. Bold colors, undulating surfaces and richly layered spaces all contribute to a fun and stimulating learning atmosphere. Color-changing LED accent lighting is integrated inside and out, and provides a strong opportunity to develop identity through awareness in the community. The Stensgaard Center includes a full teaching kitchen, individual classrooms, management offices, large and small recreation areas, a large multi-purpose dining area and space for live performances.
