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 2600-square-foot corner lot. The design consists of four, one and two bedroom flats with an underground level for parking, utilities, and storage. The units are designed to maximize the 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 that are punctuated by functional and dynamic photo-voltaic sheets and living green walls. The building systems and interiors were carefully designed and assembled to minimize energy use, and maximize comfort and durability.
The 602 Flats are certified Built Green 4-Star.
