Inspirata Pointe at Royal Oaks: Interior Design

Sun City, AZ

The resort-style, amenity-rich campus creates an elegant desert oasis.

Blending the best of residential and hospitality design, Inspirata Pointe at Royal Oaks redefines desert living. Biophilia is incorporated throughout the design to enhance resident wellness and connection to the outdoors. The beauty of Arizona’s natural environment is reflected through the selection of colors, textures, and patterns. Desert motifs, patterns inspired by nature, wood accents, and bronze metals provide richness and contrast throughout the community.

The three new dining venues—Azul, Indigo Kitchen, and Copper Skye—provide a range of options for current residents and support the evolving expectations of future residents. Branded menus and distinct table-setting designs create unique experiences at each restaurant. Azul is a sophisticated space with a sculptural light feature that creates a canopy over the seating area. For a curated experience, residents can sit at the chef’s table for a glimpse into the kitchen. For more casual dining, Indigo Kitchen is a bright and airy space serving Mediterranean fare with an open kitchen, range of seating options, and view of the courtyard. Indigo Kitchen leads into Copper Skye, an inviting bar where residents can gather and connect.

This major campus expansion succeeds in elevating the community’s dining program while also providing 150 independent living residences, expanding supportive living services, renewing the public entry and rehab center, and upgrading amenity spaces. Throughout the community, clean modern architecture with expansive overhangs and large windows allow interior spaces to flow seamlessly into the landscape.
