Seven Strand

GSC Architects February 7, 2016


7 Strand Luxury Senior Living is an upscale independent living community designed for an increasingly active and socially-engaged population. The 13-acre campus houses 300 residential units, ranging from 700 to 1,500 square feet throughout six buildings. The buildings are arranged to create an open-air quadrangle with a pool, outdoor dining, a community garden, and several lawn game courts. Dense perimeter landscaping and freestanding garages are used to create a buffer to the neighboring residences.

The four-story Main Building is the centerpiece of the development, containing a great room, two restaurants, games rooms, a bar, fitness center, indoor pool, business center, theater, and several other amenities in additional to the 50 residences. Continuous balconies encourage social interaction while breaking down the vertical scale of the Main Building. The facades are sensitive to the adjacent single family residential development, utilizing local stone, wood, and standing seam metal roofs to fit in with the surrounding context.
