The Nightingale exemplifies the Pacific Northwest experience in more ways than one. Located in the Esterra Park development in Redmond’s Overlake district, the Nightingale features 263 market rate apartments, bordered by a mature canopy of Douglas Firs.
Located atop a hill, this site takes full advantage of the unobstructed views of the Seattle and Bellevue skylines as well as the Olympic Mountains. The Perch, a 25-foot-tall atrium, is filled with natural light, includes a full gourmet kitchen with bar and café seating, a TV area, coffee bar and lounge area, with all spaces having full access to the views.
The building design exemplifies simplicity of form, color and proportion, allowing it to stand out within the context of Esterra Park. The proportions work to create a visual harmony between the individual parts and the building as a whole. While the landscape design draws inspiration from the natural environment with large conifers, ferns and other native understory plants.
