THW Design brought the outdoors in for Buckhead’s Kingsboro at Lenbrook.

Buckhead is no stranger to luxury living, but there’s something special about Lenbrook, a sophisticated senior community that recently wrapped a $108 million project to add Kingsboro at Lenbrook to its original property. Prices for the new amenity-rich addition start at $1.1 million and include access to the full continuum of care, plus a regulation-size croquet lawn, a fitness center with an indoor saline pool and spa, one outdoor and four indoor dining venues and rooftop terrace, to scratch the surface.

Tying it all together is an idyllic design from THW Design that brings the outdoors in and seamlessly connects the two properties. The Sandy Springs-based firm spearheaded the expansion that features 53 flat- and villastyle residences ranging in size from 1,700 to 3,200 square feet.

“A project like Kingsboro comes together with many talented hands collaborating,” says Jim Hudgins, president of THW Design, who helmed a project team of 12 to make it happen. Here, Hudgins and Lenbrook COO Felecia Sveda discuss bringing the new build from rendering to real life.

What inspired the property’s overall look and feel?

JIM HUDGINS: The design concept required close collaboration with the city and Buckhead community, known for its mix of classic elegance and modern luxury. The Kingsboro design, through its modern stacked flats and classic villas, provides a transition from Lenbrook’s existing contemporary high-rise buildings to the residential scale of the surrounding community.

When developing the design plan, what was the main priority?

FELECIA SVEDA: Biophilic design: The lobby beautifully captures this principle of bringing the outside in and connecting to nature. It was also vital that the Kingsboro building be connected to the existing buildings. This was accomplished by creating an indoor connector filled with natural light that links the two.

Where does wellness come into the picture?

JH: Thoughtful composition of landscape and hardscape creates a variety of spaces to promote wellness. Resident balconies and villa gardens create a balance of public and private spaces along the courtyard, while fountains provide a tranquil backdrop for the walking paths, lawn, firepits and lounge areas. Additional exterior areas, including a regulation-size croquet lawn, a rooftop terrace with skyline views and an outdoor lounge just off the lobby, round out the active lifestyle amenities available to the entire Lenbrook community.

How does the design of Kingsboro at Lenbrook elevate the resident experience?

FS: The design was intentional in making the new amenities in the Kingsboro building and the outdoor spaces accessible to all our residents. The indoor connector allows residents to travel throughout the campus without having to go outside. There are also minimal transitions and hard surfaces to reach the croquet lawn, front-entry plaza, Kingsboro courtyard and plaza gardens—all to maximize the resident experience.
