NOMINATED BY: THW DesignPROJECT STATEMENT: This existing life plan community offers 360-degree views of the surrounding Bird Key and gulf waters. As part of an original 2006 master plan, the new Northwest Garden building provides 30 memory care, 30 assisted living and 10 luxury independent living apartments. The building has 147,000 square feet on three floors, plus a lower parking level.
Its design reflects the local vernacular history and influences of the Sarasota School of Architecture, a prominent post-war modern style of the area that includes expansive glass and open plans, capitalizing on the views and providing natural light and outdoor connectivity.
