LA GRANDE // OR
A stroll along a nature path, a peaceful breakfast on the patio, a game of checkers shared between 8- and 80-year-old neighbors, soccer and a BBQ with family and friends, a place to learn new skills together with neighbors you’ve just met. A place not just to call home but to be at home. This is community, a life of connection that’s so much more than just getting by. This is the aim of Timber Ridge; the soul-deep breath of coming home.
With trauma-informed design, the team considered the whole of a person’s life experience of struggles and hopes to respond with a variety of spaces that allow for a spectrum of engagement. Here you can meet people of all ages and backgrounds, find opportunities to play, study, exercise, and experience nature on a daily basis. Thoughtful programming and support services prioritize safety and stress reduction and create a sense of belonging. Powered by the sun, this visionary zero-energy design makes the worry of environmental impact and electric bills float away.
