Senior Lifestyle Orchard Pointe
Port Orchard, Washington

ZPD+A and Senior Lifestyle Corporation have been creatively collaborating on communities across the United States for half a decade, creating regionally focused interiors that support residents’ dynamic lifestyle and activities, while simultaneously benefiting management targets and maintenance efficiencies. 

Located in Port Orchard, Washington, the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains sets the mood for the renovation. Taking inspiration from the close-knit community, the land and sea; we are integrating organic shapes, natural materials and handcrafted finishes to create welcoming, cozy and vibrant community. Painted wood and brass accents pay a nod to the seafaring heritage of the community, while wood and chunky weaves reflect the natural environment. The interior integrates color and pattern schemes inspired by coastal motifs and the natural environs. Layered together, these finishes combine to create a welcoming, cozy and warm spaces, inviting relaxation and connection.

This Pacific Northwest community needed a creative and thoughtful refresh for the common areas. The design team at zpd+a envisioned a fresh, new look for the Independent and Assisted Living community, implementing a vibrant and welcoming scheme designed to appeal to the varied needs and comfort of the residents, as well as their families and the community employees while adhering to the specific requirements of accessibility and mobility needs relevant to the population of the community.  

The refresh maximized space and utility, reconfiguring the reception area with custom millwork to provide a bright and welcoming Lobby. New technologies create new opportunities for interactive areas, and the design included a Digital Games Lounge, a new Pub Lounge, and an Interactive Studio designed for family facetime and zoom calls. Creating a new community Music Lounge, Library as well as refreshing the Creative Studio have inspired new places for gathering and activities for residents.  

 

Construction and installation throughout the COVID pandemic required ongoing care to protect the at-risk population and was handled with remote oversight from the ownership and design team. Protocols were thoroughly adhered to protect the residents and employees, while maintaining overall expectations and deliverables. This required communications dexterity and weekly meetings with ownership, procurement team, general contractor, construction project manager and the Orchard Pointe community staff.
