Aegis Living of Queen Anne at Rodgers Park

Seattle, Washington
Taking inspiration from the historic Victorian architecture for which Seattle’s North Queen Anne neighborhood is renowned, Perkins Eastman’s design for Aegis Living’s new assisted living and memory care facility pays homage to its natural and built surroundings through the use of roof dormers, a wrap-around porch, a custom jeweler’s clock on the outdoor terrace, decorative masonry chimney, and a large central dome which anchors the building.

Rodgers Park offers 129 assisted living and memory care apartments within a 1.86-acre site that overlooks the Queen Anne Bowl Playfield. Interior detailing combines signature Victorian colors, materials and opulent patterns with modern comforts. Building amenities include a movie theater, sports lounge, pool, fitness area, swimming pool, arts & crafts studio, juice bar, and pub, as well as other communal gathering areas such as an outdoor terrace and courtyard garden, which act as key stimuli for residents suffering from Alzheimer’s and other dementia.

The building’s design employs sustainable strategies as well, meeting a four-star rating for multi-family residential new construction set by Built Green, an environmentally-focused, nonprofit building program of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties. Implementation of these strategies includes, but is not limited to, preserving common and native exceptional large trees on-site, installing a Green Roof, and meeting the Seattle Green Factor scoring system, which ensures a high-quality and resilient urban landscape.
