lotus616 is a Grand Rapids Michigan-based studio that specializes in
interior design, project management, and procurement solutions
for senior living environments across the country.

Our clients are seeking to achieve environments that are safe, clean, invigorating, and conducive to purposeful activities, and offer choices that are life-enhancing for residents and families.


The lotus616 studio for senior living grew out of our passion for interior design and desire to create environments our own parents would love to live in and inspire them to expand their horizons as they age.

Until recently our professional design experience was focused on designing places for people to work.

Now we design adaptable environments for the aging population to live.

We believe that senior living environments should benefit from a more human-centered experience….one that enriches the emotional, cognitive and physical well-being of people.

From ground up construction, thru acquisition or re-positioning of existing properties, we are committed helping you connect the dots between design and resident well-being such that you feel empowered and satisfied that your space is all your own and offers a balance between staff and resident’s needs.
