Aesthetics
Murano Senior Living, Seattle
Submitted by: Ankrom Moisan
Located next to the Frye Art Museum, Murano
Senior Living's design is inspired by art at every turn,
beginning with post-modernist touches and salonstyle art installations influenced by the museum
itself. Interiors feature vibrant finishes and furnishings
to complement both the classical and contemporary
art that's showcased throughout the project. The
palette is derived from local nature, including Mt.
Rainier and Puget Sound, resulting in a " color story "
that's carried across spaces to provide wayfinding
and distinctions between floors. That scheme is
even continued in exterior framings on the building's
windows as well as in a custom glass art piece by
famous local artist Dale Chihuly that hangs in the
entry lobby.

The Watermark by the Bay,
Emeryville, Calif.
Originally constructed in 2010 with a more institutional
aesthetic, the community was acquired by Watermark Retirement Communities in 2012 and in need
of an upgrade-particularly the dark entry lobby and
cafeteria-style dining space. The primary project goals
for the lobby, specifically, were to open it up and make it
more inviting. This involved removing as many walls and
barriers to natural light as feasible as well as redesigning
the ceiling to eliminate lowered soffits and dropped ceilings. Columns were wrapped in wood, while a custom
carpet helps manage acoustics. A palette of whites,
creams, and grays brightens the space, and a custom
chandelier, geometric screens, and a green wall add
vibrancy. The dining space was similarly enlivened by
introducing rich shades of gold, coral, and blue, while a
variety of seating options, from formal to casual, lends
to a restaurant aesthetic.
