A challenging site with a 60-foot terrace led to this unique Class A office building located across from Seattle’s renowned Gas Works Park. Designers strategically stacked the four floors along the grade to take advantage of as many unobstructed views as possible. The building caters to the general public with a transparent “view way” at the center of the building allowing pedestrians on the sidewalk to see through the building to Lake Union and the downtown skyline. In addition, a rooftop park is accessible to the public as well as the tenants. The unique design includes a 38-foot terraced outdoor court with amazing views of the park and downtown Seattle. Rustic and modern materials harmonize with the 1900s machinery featured in Gas Works Park to create an office building that complements the community.
