Providing Active Seniors with housing appropriate to their needs on a sloping site is a challenge that this project solved in a creative and bold
manner. Using a series of terraces, the community rooms and apartment floors cascade downwards from the parking level in a manner that manages to reduce their
building mass that could otherwise have been too overwhelming. Sensitive use of a variety of exterior materials and detailing including exposed rafter tails, narrow
horizontal siding, wooden panels and ribbon windows further humanizes this large building by introducing familiar design elements reminiscent of the local housing
vernacular. The Community Rooms are bright, cheerful and inviting. Amenities include a community garden with raised planter beds to facilitate their use by residents.
The apartments are elegantly simple, with ample storage and furnish well.
