Willamette Lutheran Homes Retirement Community
This project was designed for active seniors. The project takes advantage of the park-like setting of the site, offering a choice of different views and orientation for residents. Natural daylight was a key design feature. The units feature 9 ft. ceilings and low window sill heights for ease of viewing when sitting. Vaulted ceilings were incorporated into the living room and kitchen area. The design recalls images and feelings of older country homes which would be a familiar and comfortable environment for seniors. The exterior provides a covered entry porch and a concrete patio. The site was designed with views and security in mind as well an enhanced sense of community. The units have individual exterior colors and finishes to provide variation and individuality in appearance. All cottages are interconnected to other facilities on the Willamette Lutheran Homes campus with sidewalks, roads and hiking trails.
