Case Study: Housing

Tempo Apartments

With dynamic roof forms and pronounced bay windows, the Tempo acts as a new gateway to the North Magnolia neighborhood. The northeast corner of the building greets travelers entering Magnolia with an upward sweeping shed roof and large windows at the commercial level, while the downward sloping roof of the northwest corner addresses the residential neighborhood to the west. The project features a variety of unit types, including double-height mezzanines on the top floor, as well as generous outdoor spaces and private balconies that capture panoramic views to Phinney Ridge, Queen Anne Hill, and Elliot Bay.
