Bridging The Gap Between The Old and The New 

The project consists of a 24 story mixed-use development located in the heart of Belltown neighborhood. It reserves the landmark structure to the southeast while creating a multistory atrium space buffer between the old and the new.

The design massing responds to the landmark buildings on both sides by creating brick clad podium level and having the gladd tower set back from the base. The massing of the tower is further reduce by balconies at the corners and the vertical recesses.

The roof the historic Franklin building is utilized as a large outdoor amenity area.

Grand Design for Micro Unit

This LEED Gold certified 23-units congregated housing project is situated on a triangle 3.200 SF lot next to I-5 highway ramp. The building shape and highly efficient floor plan layout respond well to the site geometry. The material palate and architectural details further elevate its industrial aesthetic to make it a good fit for its targeted users. The warm orange accent color panels add contrast to the otherwise muted color palate while breaking down the perceived massing to fit into the surroundings.
