Sunrise of redmond

Sunrise of Redmond was acquired by Sunrise Senior Living in 2019. Richmond is a small community located close to Seattle, Washington, an area surrounded by many rivers and green spaces, making it an ideal place for enjoying nature. These aspects, in addition to looking at the culture unique to Redmond, began to drive the design process. One of the main goals was to elevate the existing assisted living community to compete with the local market, and to attract new and former families. Given the location and culture, the team decided to bring in organic materials, textural elements, and a bold color palette to compliment the natural surroundings and bring a modern elegance to the interior. The saturated colors in the finishes and fabrics, in addition to the wood tones throughout, enhance the cascade of natural light and view of the outdoors from within the building. Once the renovation was complete, the client was thrilled to welcome a returning resident as the very first occupant to the new, revitalized community. Staff and residents are pleased with the adaptable, modern elegance provided by the new design.
