Downtown Redmond, WA
Opening: Winter 2019
Modera Redmond presented Tiscareno Associates with the unique zoning challenges of a single-street frontage, limits on subterranean construction depths, and the requirement for two fire apparatus access lanes. The neighborhood, in turn, called for an outdoor, nature-inspired and community-centric theme.
Working with the stakeholders, the firm landed on a Y-shaped design that met the City of Redmond’s requirements, while maximizing light, air, rentable square footage, parking, residential amenities, and public access to street-level community spaces.
The building’s exterior pulls from the region’s rural, agrarian roots. It’s slanted, soaring roofline is reminiscent of the barns and farmhouses that once dotted the landscape. And the pallet of colors, materials and textures include cream, grey and dark brown tones, reflecting a cleaner, more contemporary interpretation of rustic materials.
The front façade features five angular wave-like bay windows that balance the building’s size while offsetting its airy, light-filled lobby. Residents will enjoy 3,000 SF of indoor and 8,000 SF of outdoor amenity space, including two courtyards—each with its own character – and one of Redmond’s first rooftop decks featuring an indoor lounge, outdoor barbecue and landscaped gathering areas.
