Removing barriers, enhancing life
You know there’s something different the minute you walk through the doors. Part of it’s the incredible light — and it’s not all natural. We use indoor lighting that mirrors the time of day during the summer, extends the daylight during long winter days and helps you sleep more soundly at night all year round. Our welcoming common areas invite gatherings of residents, friends, and families. You’ll also enjoy nature-based and historical artwork throughout the Community, and sophisticated color palettes that inspire vitality.
With a lobby and community rooms reminiscent of a grand hotel, The Waters feels anything but institutional — and that’s no accident. We don’t look for architects with experience designing hospitals and nursing homes. We partner with innovators experienced in high-end hotel and luxury apartment design. Working within ADA guidelines, we provide the research and real-life perspectives our architectural teams need to create environments in which seniors can thrive.
“Quality is never an accident: it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.”
– William Foster
Refined, luxurious, classic, vibrant. At The Waters, these are the essential elements of design. Much of this can be attributed to our collaboration with Minneapolis-based, award-winning interior designer, Renée LeJeune Hallberg of RLH Studio. Renée and her team design gathering rooms that are inviting to residents and their guests, cozy nooks for private moments, wellness spaces that invigorate, and restaurants that are every bit as delicious as the cuisine served there.
Our goal is to create the ambiance of home; sophisticated, yet incredibly comfortable. The careful selection of colors, fabrics, finishes and textures creates an authentic aesthetic that is gracious and inviting. Each of our communities has their own style personality, inspired by the unique cultures of the surrounding neighborhoods. At the Waters, we are proud to say we design with you in mind.
