Bar-V-Nook Manor

Raising the bar: evidence based design at Bar-V-Nook

Altro WoodAltro Designer 25, Altro Whiterock

From the floors to the walls, Bar-V-Nook Manor, an assisted living facility located in Smoky Lake, Alberta, chose Altro.

Using a combination of wood products, Bar-V-Nook opted for Altro Wood Safety in the resident bathrooms and memory care kitchen, and a doorway transition to resident rooms led to Altro Wood Smooth - a perfect example of how our slip resistant and smooth flooring can be used in harmony.

Aside from the bathrooms and resident rooms, Bar-V-Nook used Altro Designer 25 sheet vinyl flooring and Altro Whiterock wall panels in their kitchen and laundry areas. This Altro combination provides a slip resistant, durable, watertight environment.

The interior was designed by Judith Strachan Interior Design and the architecture by Wilson Architects Ltd.

Being built in Smoky Lake, the “pumpkin capital of Alberta,” Bar-V-Nook’s design focused on warm tones that included oranges, creams and browns with red accents. Not just for the annual Pumpkin Festival, those colors separated three zones.

“These different color schemes provided cues to residents to orient them,” said Val Wilson of Wilson Architects Ltd. “The client group and many tour groups have commented on the functionality of the flooring and the attractive colors of the building.”

Done-Rite Floors Ltd. did an excellent job installing the flooring, and the project was sourced and supplied from Erv Parent, Altro’s long-time distributor in this region.

Offering a range of 16 classic, contemporary classic and on-trend designs, Altro Wood Safety offers the benefit of Altro’s patented safety technology combined with attractive wood looks. Designs that match are available in our Altro Wood Smooth line, making transitions between areas that need slip resistance and those that do not a breeze.
