This 1930’s art-deco industrial building was renovated to provide efficiency apartments for residents of Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood.
While the exterior of the building remains as a nod to the building’s history, the interior is fresh and contemporary. Lighting supports the modern aesthetic with clean-lined fixtures that provide both form and function. Minimal quantities of fixtures were installed for cost-saving measures, but those chosen still allow for layers of task, accent, and ambient light, all crucial to creating a pleasing residential environment. Lighting highlights the texture of exposed brick in the lobby and corridors adding a special warmth and drama to these shared spaces. And finally, the controls system provides energy efficiency, as well greater user flexibility.
