Scott Edwards Architecture designs for Rose Villa neighborhood
Two new pocket neighborhoods are being added to the Rose Villa Senior Living campus in Milwaukie's Fair Oaks district.
Portland-based Scott Edwards Architecture (SEA) will design the Garden Grove and North Pocket neighborhoods, which will add 28 new independent living units to the Rose Villa campus.
The North Pocket neighborhood is an extension of the first phase of the pocket neighborhood, which was completed with a $60 million renovation last year. It influences the North Pocket designs, which include 18 homes ranging from 925 to 1,800 square feet.
The Garden Grove neighborhood plans include two buildings with 10 units, featuring green roofs.
The pocket neighborhood homes are clustered around a garden setting, near the Willamette river. Like phase one of the campus, North Pocket and Garden Grove homes are designed to bring the outdoors in with large windows and vaulted ceilings, with adaptable interiors.
SEA was founded in Portland in 1998 and today serves national clients in multi-family, commercial, hospitality, healthcare and education fields. SEA is working closely with Rose Villa's CEO Vassar Byrd to create the senior living community of distinct pocket neighborhoods featuring unique architectural identities and a wide range of living experiences.
Rose Village Senior Living is located on 22 acres and is meant to bring together people above the age of 55 for meaningful interactions over common interests such as community gardening or coffee. Its wellness center includes a salon, workout classes, a saline aquatics center with a lazy river and chef-prepared artisan meals. The cottage homes support independent living, in-home services and 24-hour nursing care so residents can age in place.
Groundbreaking is slated for early December, 2017.
