Phoebe Allentown’s Iconic Trexler Building Receives an External Make-Over with the Help of Interior Designers

In 2011, the team at DesignPoint was hired by Phoebe Ministries to lead the interior design renovations at Phoebe Terrace, an independent senior living community in Allentown.

The project, led by senior interior designer Pamela Sullivan, expanded the lobby, created a social library, mail room, coffee lounge, and common area. The enhancements were necessary improvements to keep pace in the competitive senior living industry. The building was originally built in the 1970s as a standard senior high rise; however, the community lacked the modern appeal and upscale feel that has become popular in senior living design trends. Phoebe Terrace administrator Antoinette Trainor had a general idea how she wanted the facility to look, but depended on Sullivan for creative ideas and directions based on DesignPoint’s expertise and experience. At the culmination of the project, Phoebe Terrace residents and Phoebe executives declared the new interiors a success. Happy with the project outcome, Phoebe management sought Sullivan for a different project in 2012.Read More
