MorningStar of Mountain View delivers a California coastal modern atmosphere to age-targeted locals who require a higher level of care. This luxurious, service-enriched community utilizes a clean, soft contemporary architectural style embellished with warm, rustic textures such as wood siding, split-face stone, smooth plaster, slatted wood balcony railings, and thin, metal window shade fins. At the pedestrian level, storefront glazing brings light and life into the common spaces beyond. Perforated metal panels clad the exterior stairs to add interest and lessen the impact of the massing on the neighbors to the south. The building’s C-shape centers the community around a lively courtyard full of lush greenery creating a more intimate setting within the numerous sitting areas. Most of the amenities — a library, lounge, theater, club room, restaurant, wellness center, bistro, art studio, salon, therapeutic spa, and additional, terraced courtyards — surround the main courtyard to ensure ease of walkability from activity to activity throughout the day. Per commentary from the city and nearby denizens, this community was designed with concealed, subterranean parking, hidden emergency vehicle access in the remote back corner, and high-end finishes to maintain the upscale feel of the community.
