Wellington BayWellington, FL LS3P served as Design Architect for this inviting coastal Continuing Care Retirement Community in Wellington, FL, in association with Architect of Record MSA Architects; RD Jones provided interior design services. The stately design incorporates hospitality elements to create an aesthetic that feels more like a grand hotel than an institutional environment. Residential wings with 500 beds define and envelop a welcoming entry courtyard, and blended indoor/outdoor spaces throughout the campus create a sense of connectivity and encourage activity. A cupola over the main entry and towers at the residential wings act as beacons to welcome residents and visitors. An expansive outdoor terrace leads to a pool deck celebrating outdoor leisure and a coastal lifestyle. The campus includes 16 villa units, 60 garden flat units, and a building that houses 224 independent living units and 124 assisted living units. The campus also features 65,000 SF of amenity space and a sales office/gate house that recalls the polo culture of the surrounding area with design elements drawn from stables. Site amenities include an outdoor pool, cabana, putting green, dog park, bocce, pickle ball, gardens, three large lakes, and a horse paddock for equine therapy.
