Located along one of Seattle's growing development corridors on Capitol Hill, this unique multi-family project adds sensible density and livability to 12th Avenue on a limited 2600sf corner lot. The design consists of four, 1 and 2 bedroom, flats with an underground level for parking, utilities, and storage. The units are designed to maximize efficiency of the small footprint while offering generous natural light and ventilation.
The structure's massing responds directly to the numerous regulatory and utility constraints on the small site. The finished envelope consists of metal windows and a neutral background of aluminum panels punctuated by functional and dynamic photo-voltaic panels and living green walls. Building systems and the projects interior design were carefully assembled to minimize energy use while providing comfort and durability.
The 602 Flats were completed in 2018 and are certified Built Green 4-Star.
