Los Angeles based Rael Development selected Rosemann & Associates to create a dynamic state of the art student residence on an extremely challenging site in Bellingham, WA. Gather Bellingham is located adjacent to Western Washington University. The design incorporates apartments ranging from studio to 4 bedroom units with a shared living, dining, kitchen and laundry and individual private bedroom and bath suite.
This innovative design concept utilizes a 3 story parking garage with 5 stories of housing above. The main entry, located on the 6th floor, is accessed via an enclosed pedestrian bridge that opens into a lobby with seating and leasing offices. A second entry located on the 1st floor opens into a lobby and mail center. The building is served by an elevator that exits into a lobby adjacent to amenities at all levels. Students will enjoy exercise rooms, game rooms, lounge areas, quiet study rooms and a roof top terrace on the 6th floor that overlooks Bellingham Bay and Vancouver Island further to the west.
