IS YOUR residence future-ready? LEARN simple strategies TO create A ‘LIFELONG HOME’ by Visiting the Interaction lab at Southglenn Library
The City of Centennial wants residents to thrive in their homes for as long as they wish to do so, no matter their age or circumstance. To showcase home design strategies that make homes comfortable and accessible for all ages and abilities, Centennial has partnered with Arapahoe Libraries to create a new interactive exhibit called the “Interaction Lab,” located inside Southglenn Library, 6972 S. Vine St., Centennial.
The Interaction Lab introduces the concept of Universal Design, which creates environments or products that are accessible and benefit everyone, regardless of age or ability. Universal Design is especially important to those wanting to remain in their home as they age.
“The city is grateful for the partnerships in place to make this unique hands-on Interaction Lab a reality. The lab provides the opportunity to engage with technology and universal design features to make each home a better fit for individual residents’ needs. It is important to the city to provide resources and information to residents so they can remain in their homes as long as they wish,” said Centennial Mayor Stephanie Piko. “The Interaction Lab will continue to evolve as partners work together with patrons to understand the most desired smart-home features and Universal Design concepts to include in the lab.”
The City of Centennial partnered with Arapahoe Libraries, Arrow Electronics, Colorado State University and Denver South Economic Development Partnership to create the Interaction Lab.
