Outside of the Seattle city lights, surrounded by mountains and forests, this project would have been easy to stylize with the typical rugged Pacific Northwest aesthetic. Instead, our clients became true design partners, daring to be different by supporting an adventurous and unexpected visual direction… to LOOK UP. The vast and moody sky became the inspiration and the design narrative was the experience of ascension, going from dark to light as one moves up floors in the building. Steel floors, custom art wallcoverings and a less-is-more approach to space sets the tone. The result is an airy and whistful experience which ends in the 7th floor lounge where you can walk to the corner of the very top of the building, and open it. Go get the telescope!
