Summary

This West Seattle apartment building negotiates a tricky triangular lot to provide 5 stories of studios and lofts, as well as 2 live/work units. The new workforce housing project harnesses the traditional vernacular of brick and multi-light windows in homage to historic warehouse renovations. Generous landscaping at the street scales down an otherwise too-wide sidewalk, favoring green over pavement. A playful public art piece by artist Jesse Link continues the West Seattle tradition of building murals, and celebrates the neighborhood’s connection to Puget Sound.
