The Meyer Corporate and Senior Living Studio teams were recently on-site for the official groundbreaking of a new addition to Manufacturers’ Golf & Country Club, located in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, and for The Chelsea at Washington Township – a new Capitol Seniors Housing assisted living and memory care community in Washington Township, Bergen County, New Jersey.
Manufacturers’ Golf & Country Club
Meyer’s design for a new addition to Manufacturers’ Golf & Country Club modernizes its amenities while preserving the elegance and grandeur of this historic club. Inspired by industrial and traditional themes, the new addition seamlessly joins the interior with the exterior for a more unified social experience, whether it be large gatherings, golf tournaments, informal wine tastings, or an evening by the firepit.
The Chelsea at Washington Township
The Chelsea at Washington Township is a 76,700 square‐foot, two‐story community featuring a variety of one and two‐bedroom luxury residences and an array of amenities. Meyer’s design was conceived to offer residents an elegant and luxurious lifestyle while still providing an environment that is welcoming and comfortable.
The community’s architectural design was influenced by the local and regional architecture in Washington Township. In particular, Seven Chimneys, the oldest residential structure in Washington Township and a state and nationally registered historic place. George Washington stayed there during the Revolutionary War as did President Theodore Roosevelt. The iconic ‘seven chimneys’ were replicated to provide an homage to the historic structure. Other architectural elements include the use of shallow sloped gables, stone, and horizontal clapboard siding to reflect the area’s colonial style.
The interior design of the community features purposeful spaces to create meaningful experiences for residents, families, and staff. A warm neutral palette with blue accents and natural materials seamlessly connects the sophisticated manor-style exterior to the interior spaces. Distinctive details were precisely designed throughout that incorporate the local community and historical elements with a modern interpretation.
