The Springs at Tanasbourne Summit is a 5-acre, 211 unit, senior care facility located in the Tanasbourne area of Hillsboro, Oregon. The project includes apartments and condos for independent and assisted living residents, incorporating active and passive garden spaces, pathways, parking, and retail. The project will focus on providing senior residents with positive views from rooms, screening areas from parking and busy roads as well as capturing scenic distant views of the West Hills. Landscape elements include a connected pathway system for exercise and therapy, seating and plaza areas, and landscaped courtyards for dining, activities, and therapeutic use. The project will incorporate recent research on senior care and therapeutic landscape design to inform the site planning, spatial layout and detailed design and planting process, creating both a feeling of home and provision of a safe and positive healing environment.
