New community boasts industrial-inspired design to appeal to local prospects

Following the success of other Silver Birch projects in the area, Gardant and Vermilion partnered with Direct Supply® Aptura® to bring their new community in Kokomo, Indiana to life. The goal of the space was to create a dynamic community filled with engaging amenities that speak to the local population. Aptura was able to incorporate learnings from previous projects and infuse the space with locally inspired design to set the community apart.

Known as the City of Firsts, Kokomo has a rich history in automobile manufacturing and agriculture innovations. The design team chose eclectic art, decorative objects, comfortable textures and a refined, neutral color palette to speak to the innovative and creative culture in Kokomo. With a wide array of dynamic amenities and industrial-inspired design that speaks to the rich history of the local area, Silver Birch of Kokomo sets itself apart from the competition. Local seniors will feel right at home at Silver Birch of Kokomo.
