North Ridge at Tacoma Lutheran

Tacoma, Washington
14 Assisted Living Memory Care Units

Completed Spring 2016

Tacoma Lutheran envisioned creating an environment for their dementia residents where seniors could “explore, engage in stimulating activities and live in a beautiful supportive, home-like atmosphere”.  The result is North Ridge, a 14-resident small house addition featuring private rooms arranged around a kitchen, dining and living spaces oriented to views of gardens beyond.  Gable roofs over the common spaces and service ‘garage’ break the massing into smaller, residential-scaled elements.
