Drina Nikola announces her new enterprise – providing design, downsizing and moving services for Chicagoland’s boomer-and-beyond set.
Previously director of interior design for a national developer of upscale continuing care retirement communities, Drina saw firsthand the demand for aging in place and the benefits. With more than three decades in commercial interior design and project management with major Chicago-based architectural firms, her skills transition seamlessly to this emerging market.
A licensed interior designer and LEED AP, she has already left her distinctive design mark on top-level projects for Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the University of Chicago Medical Center and Advocate Health Care. She has consulted, and will continue to consult, on the planning, design and architecture of senior living facilities with owners, operators and developers.
An active member of her community, Drina serves on the housing committee for the Age Friendly Evanston! task force. She has helped develop sustainable environmental practices for both her church and hometown, including co-writing Evanston’s LEED Ordinance for Construction.
