Design Partner Awarded for The Blake at Waco
Banko Design, LLC receives prestigious award for the design of Waco’s leading senior living community
WACO, TX – LifeCare Properties with Blake Management Group proudly recognizes partner Banko Design for their 2022 Bronze Award from the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) for The Blake at Waco.
Each year, the ASID meticulously selects from first-rate applicants spearheading the design industry in innovation, combined with progressive human and global impact. For their exceptional design of The Blake at Waco—a 110-unit assisted living and memory care community— ASID awarded Banko Design the Bronze Award in the Multifamily Senior Living category.
“I am overwhelmed with gratitude and pride for our team, as well as our partnership with LifeCare Properties, that led to this award,” said Melissa Banko, Principal and Owner of Banko Design. “With this project, we wanted to emulate a striking combination of traditional Texas roots with an immaculate, modern aesthetic. We want every person who walks through those doors to feel the intentionality behind each of our design decisions that is evident in every corner of the community.”
Beautifully appointed, The Blake at Waco lends itself to an extraordinary environment with a rich history. Influenced by central Texas’ rolling landscapes and nearby farmlands, its design has no shortage of immaculate architectural and historical elements. Featuring intricate detailing through wooden beams, stunning light fixtures and inviting fabrics, the community highlights a striking Southern aesthetic with rich blue and green accents.
“The Blake at Waco was idealized for seniors seeking a 24/7 unmatched care experience with resort-style comfort and service,” said Brooks Holstein, founder and managing partner of LifeCare Properties. “The team at Banko Design far exceeded this mission. From their thorough planning to intricate detailing, they have created an unrivaled atmosphere that feels like home to residents.”
