KING STREET FLATS
Located within Seattle’s Central Area, this master plan organizes two small multi-family buildings around a shared, internal courtyard. The 30 homes within the project are all located at building corners to optimize daylight, natural ventilation, and views to downtown Seattle. The buildings step with the site slope to minimize the massing, while maximizing the floor area ratio. The ground floor of each building offers accessible ramps and a secure bike parking room, while upper levels include decks for most homes. The interiors are sensibly designed and stacked for efficiency around a common circulation core. The project offers thoughtfully designed homes within the city, meets the needs of a rigorous pro-forma, and integrates with the surrounding neighborhood.
