Franklin, Indiana

The Indiana Masonic Home first opened in Franklin, Indiana in 1916 and has been in continuous operation serving the needs of Indiana Masons and their families. As a result of direct competition and rapidly aging facilities, the board embarked on creating a long range plan for improvements to the community. After careful consideration, planning, and focus group input led by Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf Architects, a forty-eight unit new assisted living building was designed.

The new senior-living building has a separate covered entrance canopy with associated parking for visitors and residents. The forty-eight unit building is divided into four groups of twelve residents each and organized around a central rotunda. Each group of twelve residents shares a centralized lounge and activity space that promotes resident interaction. All 48 apartments are fully accessible one-bedroom units and contain full baths, kitchen, dining, and living spaces. This layout promotes resident dignity by allowing staff to serve them within the comfort of their own home. The architectural character will continue and enhance the Masonic Symbolism of the compass and square inset in a circle that is prevalent throughout the existing site and buildings.
