Bringing a very modern high rise to the border of a quaint shopping area and a beloved downtown park meant straddling these two constructs with the design. When residents come home, they need to feel that their geographic juxtaposition melts together for a greater, comforting whole.
Reflecting this dichotomy and speaking to the target market of professionals, our designers focused on creating an amalgam of sophistication and nature. Natural elements and materials are used in highly contemporary ways, from walls made of large end-grain blocks of fir, to a laser cut metal screen that creates a dappled lighting pattern as if one was under a tree. There is even artwork made up of succulent plants. Throughout, an elegant, muted palette of grays and whites create a quiet respite from daily activities.
