Case Study: Adaptive Re-Use

Supply Laundry Building

Preserving the past, greening the future

Located between downtown Seattle and Lake Union, this full block project combines the restoration and adaptive re-use of the Supply Laundry Building, a City of Seattle historic landmark.  Responding to its large scale and urban location, the design focuses on the balance between pedestrian and vehicle at grade, massing and modulation above grade, and the architectural relationship of the buildings as a whole.  Green features include bio-swales along Pontius and Yale.
