Garlands of Barrington

The Garlands is a beautifully designed, Arts & Crafts Movement-inspired retirement community in Barrington, Illinois. We built the entire wayfinding system throughout its 32 acres to complement this artisan-based design motif. Bronze, brass and cherry wood were used prominently in the signage. And we even featured the most renowned figures from the Arts & Crafts era as thematic landmarking elements, since most residents would have fond familiarity with these artists. 

Your innovation and organization allows each and every team member and countless seniors at The Garlands to navigate their way through our community by following impeccable signage to our neighborhoods. Additionally, the coordinated wayfinding with the Village’s emergency responders makes this community among the safest.
