Brightview Woodmont

Demand for traditional suburban, gated retirement communities is fading in favor of more urban, walkable areas.

The 113-unit building strives to fit every service found in a traditional retirement home into a more compact space. These amenities include multiple dining options–a formal dining room and a café-as well as activity spaces for arts, crafts, and other hobbies. The eight-story facility also features a rooftop deck with views of the Washington D.C. skyline. Our design team thoughtfully conceived to place the different community uses, including transportation services and the Wellspring Village memory care suite, at their optimum locations.

The architectural design for the highrise is inspired by its metropolitan surroundings. The building facades are designed to be transparent and modern with large expanses of glazing at street level and varying materials, heights and setbacks. The building as a whole fits with the ambiance of the other new developments in downtown Bethesda.
