Providence Point is a 170 acre new town on the Sammamish Plateau providing a variety of housing options for individuals 62 years or older. Bumgardner was responsible for the master plan of the community as well as for approximately 500 units of housing and the two commercial buildings, Town Hall and the Clubhouse at Providence Point. The project has received numerous MAME awards, including the Grand Award, and Best Community Land Use Plan. It was featured on the first AIA/Seattle Times “Housing the Northwest” tour of homes.
The Highland Village neighborhood provides the benefits of a single-family home in a dense, walkable multi-family neighborhood. Excess fill from an adjacent site was used to create a terraced hillside from which vertically stacked duplexes are accessed from two sides. Dual street frontage allows both the top and lower duplex to be entered, on grade, through a private landscaped yard to the front porch or through the attached private garage. Narrow 20 ft wide streets were negotiated with the county to calm traffic and help to achieve a density of 11 units per acre.
