The Residences at Galleria

The developer set out to create a high-end outdoor amenity space with carefully curated furnishings to meet the group’s vision and align with the overall building design and aesthetic. The project team redesigned the 43,000-square-foot courtyard into areas of pause where residents can relax and enjoy outdoor activities.

The Residences at Galleria houses 322 apartments, so the team needed diverse and inviting seating options. They faced multiple design challenges along the way. The first challenge was determining varied seating options to accommodate the high-traffic outdoor amenity space. The second was creating a cohesive, complementary flow between the design and furnishings of the clubhouse and the interior courtyard spaces. The final challenge included selecting unique outdoor fabrics and finishes to coordinate with the interior color palette, as well as choosing commercial-grade furnishings that perform well in extreme temperatures.

Now finished, the new outdoor amenity space is perfectly suited to the complex’s luxury aesthetic and for the residents’ needs. The deep seating around the fire pits and gaming areas invites conversation and community. The outdoor kitchens, decked with new barstools and tables, create additional entertainment-ready spaces. They promote an instant gathering place and help initiate social interaction. Given that the courtyard gets full sun, installing cantilever umbrellas was also crucial to creating enough shade. Mounted in concrete, these sturdy umbrellas pivot to offer wide shade coverage to the many summer weekend guests.

Overall, more than 350 quality-of-life-enhancing items have been added to this bustling outdoor oasis, all helping sustain this dynamic, sunny space.
