    The project is an excellent example of urban infill and focuses on a blank lot in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood. The 30’ wide by 100’deep lot is sandwiched between two existing buildings and allows for approximately 13,000 square feet of new commercial space. Phase one of design involves a Seattle Municipal Code study and a Seattle Building Code study to determine the parameters, limitations and possibilities of a potential building on the site. A series of thorough diagrams document the findings and conclusions of the code study and two possible schematic building designs. Design factors include connection points with the existing building, restaurants, rooftop decks and interactive terraces.

    BUILD was brought on board an existing mixed-use design project to perform a building code assessment and provide fresh architectural ideas. The BUILD scheme focuses on a rational translation of the building code and a modern design philosophy. Daylight filled interior spaces are wrapped in a pragmatic and transparent skin, while the building’s mass is separated into smaller volumes relating to the streetscape and surrounding neighborhood.

  • Gethsemane
  • From an initial short-list of (10) local firms, BUILD was one of four chosen to interview for the Gethsemane Lutheran Church renovation and new structure containing church administrative functions and (40) units of affordable housing by LATCH at 9th and Stewart in downtown Seattle. 

    Our vision focused on the following key tenets:
    1.   Providing a compelling presence to passers-by (vehicles and pedestrians), a layered sequence of events and an engaging presence to all building visitors; making the completed project a downtown destination.
    2.   Maintaining harmony between the renovated structure, new administrative building and housing above; retaining the poetics of the thoughtful program while handling the technical challenges.
    3.   Creating a renovated sanctuary that engages the community (outward focus), appeals to Gethsemane members and expands on Gethsemane’s presence as the ‘soul’ of the neighborhood.
    4.   Respecting the outlined project schedule and budget.
    5.   Exceeding the expectations and hopes of the congregation that has uniformly agreed to place their trust in the Gethsemane board and their selected Architect.

    Additionally, BUILD committed our resources and systems for raising awareness and recognition for Gethsemane’s compelling mission of service and faith among our peers primarily through the BUILDblog and our community relationships.
