Cuningham Group is designing a 300,000-square-foot senior living campus in the Tehaleh Development in Bonney Lake, Washington, for Presbyterian Homes and Wesley Homes, which are partnering on the project. The new campus will include 136 independent living units, 42 catered living units, 18 memory care units, and a 24,000-square-foot town center. The campus features a hearth room, bistro, dining space, chapel and assembly area, wellness center, fitness room, theatre, maker space, library, club room, and outdoor amenities such as patio dining, pond and pickleball courts.
Tehaleh is located on 12 acres of land surrounded by a trail system within allees of trees connecting the site to the larger development. The Pacific Northwest modern style meets the project team’s objective of timeless design with its warm, natural materials, daylight, and strong connection to the outdoors. The design team carefully sited the building to capture potential views of Mount Rainer, while natural light illuminates the campus’ interior spaces. Natural ventilation switches are utilized on the windows within the “biophilia breezeway” connection between a resident wing and the town center common amenity spaces. The breezeway allows for fresh air, aroma from fragrant flowers, and views of a creek on site running “through” the building to the nearby ponds. The campus includes a welcoming, carefully-landscaped environment with a strong connection to the nature surrounding the area. The community, residents and staff are able to enjoy views of Mount Rainer while also making use of the campus’ trails.
