Concept in practice

Like a beautiful piece of classical music, the interiors of Broadstone Strata are elegant and sophisticated, carrying the eye through the space with restraint at times and bold strokes at others. The palette is tastefully subdued, allowing the handful of carefully curated show-stopping elements to take center stage. Soft grays and light wood set a perfect backdrop for the design; the rhythm of the wood slats provide an underlying syncopation throughout the property, while stunning lobby light fixtures celebrate the double-height space.

Creating opportunities for spontaneous collaboration

The amenity spaces at Broadstone Strata were designed to cater to a modern way of working and socializing. With a mix of open yet defined pods and more private focus and collaboration areas, residents are encouraged to use these communal spaces much like they would their own living room. Creating spaces that draw residents out into the shared amenities fosters spontaneous meetings that encourage familiarity of residents and a greater sense of community.

Inspired by music and the PNW landscape 

The Club Room at Broadstone Strata is both modern and elegant, with subtle nods to the building’s design concept: the graphical language of music, rooted in the materiality of the Pacific Northwest. The decorative lighting recalls written music notes and the linear design elements are metered and rhythmic. The high contrast veining in the natural stone counters call to mind the craggy mountain peaks of our region, and the warm wood tones and deep green accents echo our iconic lush evergreen forests.
