Independent Living


Portland, Oregon



370,000 sq ft

ABD Engineering & Design worked with LRS Architects on this high-rise independent living building with 11 floors and 127 units. The one and two bedroom units provide residential spaces for up to 250 residents. The sky bridge connects the new facility, with a modern take on the classic Art Deco movement, to the existing campus.

ABD started with an exterior noise study to gather data on the site from the bus line and roadway. We used that data to make recommendations for the facade to reduce interior noise levels. ABD’s holistic acoustical recommendations included room acoustics to address echo and reverberation in the gathering spaces so residents can more easily have conversations. The interior noise isolation better separated spaces and provided privacy. Mechanical noise control reduced background noise levels, also helping in gathering spaces.
