Locally inspired nature and industry combine for sought-after Senior Living

Mainstreet continues its mission of changing the face of Transitional Care with its newest building in Lafayette, IN. The community provides enhanced choices and an alluring alternative to other post-acute stays.

Aptura created a design that pays homage to the western Indiana landscape as well as the vibrant local community and its relationship to nearby Purdue University. The Springs at Lafayette features a sophisticated color palette punctuated by pops of bright color, creating a backdrop for art and furnishings that evoke a blend of industry, education and nature.
