MERRILL GARDENS AT BALLARD Seattle, Washington


Provider: Merrill Gardens Architect: Urbal Architecture Interior Design: NAC Architecture


Merrill Gardens at Ballard has a choice


urban in-fill location in a popular neighbor- hood just north of downtown Seattle. But the small half-acre site presented a big design challenge to create a modern residential de- velopment that fit the fabric of a trendy area with lots of restaurants and shops. The 105-residence building offers inde-


pendent living, assisted living, and memory care. Aesthetically, the building was designed to integrate into the surrounding community. The entry side of the building, which con- nects to the residential neighborhood, has ground level common areas with activity spaces looking onto the public street. Large operable glass walls and glazed facades create a sense of transparency, making the amenity space a part of the street activity.


16 SENIOR LIVING EXECUTIVE / ISSUE 6 2017


A retail space on the first floor, occupied


by a fitness center for the wider commu- nity, brings outside energy to the building. “I scored this project high because of the uniqueness of the urban site and their abil- ity to create a design that played off that urban feel, while also creating functional living spaces for the residents,” said Senior Living by Design judge Amy Fouts, re- gional director of operations, Capri Senior Communities. Because of the limited amount of land


area on the site, a 5,000-square-foot rooftop terrace was created for residents to enjoy sweeping views of Puget Sound, downtown Seattle, and of busy Ballard Avenue. A gas barbecue grill and outdoor fireplace create a desirable gathering spot.
