Eleanor Apartments

The 260-unit Eleanor Apartments is located a block from the future light rail station in Seattle’s Roosevelt neighborhood. The building design celebrates the motion of water, with architectural downspouts carrying rainwater from the roofs down to terraced rain gardens that wrap around the site and courtyard. The west building’s prominent butterfly roof reflects the larger scale of I-5, looks south towards downtown Seattle, and is inspired by Pacific Northwest regional architectural while the east building design is modulated in response to the smaller scale of the neighborhood to the east.
