Androm Moisan Architects, Inc. - Aegis Living of Kirkland
A benefit to residents and the community alike, Aegis Living Kirkland Waterfront boasts a gorgeous and functional landscape designed by SCJ Studio Landscape Architecture. At street level, a cafe opens into a welcoming patio with custom paving and railings, where guests can dine alongside large potted olive trees. Wandering from the city sidewalk, neighbors can stroll alongside the assisted living residents through the Mediterranean-inspired garden. As they walk the ADA-accessible path or rest on a bench, they can take in the scent of lavender in the air and the sounds of the babbling marble fountain. Beyond the fountain, the forecourt welcomes visitors to Aegis on foot or for vehicle drop-off. Inside the facility, assisted living and memory care residents and their guests can enjoy the Atrium, a planted courtyard featuring large skylights and fountains. For the safety and well-being of the residents, this planting palette includes only non-toxic plant species. Above, unseen but beneficial green roof areas help clean stormwater.
