This 9,500-square-foot addition to the Panorama’s Assisted Living buildings provides new dining, gathering, and activity spaces for residents.
Upon entering the Quinault Lodge, visitors and residents are greeted by a slatted, wooden, uplit feature sign anchoring the end of the vestibule. Those who enter through a nearby gallery hall may observe artwork lighted from both a diffuse cove pocket and front-light wash. Artwork plays prominently in this project, whether pin-mount glass art, or large feature wall paintings.
A layered central ceiling feature in the dining hall combines glass pendants suspended precisely through openings in patterned, backlit ceiling panels along with sparkling miniature downlights. The Great Room design is inspired by Pacific Northwest architecture, employing softly uplit wood ceilings and textural stonework. Spaces that are designed to be experienced both day and night, such as the Activity Room which doubles as “movie night” room, use lighting controls that dim select fixtures for optimum ambiance.
