Aegis Living’s Bellevue headquarters opened in spring 2017, and is regarded by staff as a retreat with abundant natural light, chef-curated meals, and several rejuvenating hubs. The company was founded in Redmond 20 years ago, and now operates 28 senior living and memory care communities — 14 of which are in Washington, with nine more in development. The headquarters serve 60 support and administrative staff, many of which were included in the design process for the new office. Founder and CEO Dwayne Clark wanted employees to feel “nourished, energized, and motivated to be their best” at the new location. “The space is amazing and inviting,” said Senior Vice President of Development Walter Braun. “I may dread the work on my desk, but I never dread going into this building.”
