Artist Community

Fall 2013 |  Kirkland, WA

This proposal is Kirkland's first affordable Live/Work arts community that fulfills a need for work-force housing in the downtown core.  The over-arching goal is to bring the housing needs of a diverse group of people into an environment that promotes walk-able commuting, or work-where-you-live opportunities and celebrating the vitality an arts focused program will establish.  The building is aimed to achieve LEED Platinum Plus.

My role was mainly in design development, focusing on the details and overall material palette.  I was also in charge of creating the Design Review Board presentation and it's content, which lead to the approval of the project from the board.
