Genesee Mixed Use

commercial addition

The program for this project called for a substantial addition to an existing convenience store in Seattle's Columbia City neighborhood. The floor area of the store was doubled on the first level, and a new second story was constructed for leased office space. In order to maximize floor area, the office level was designed with long, projecting bays on two sides. These bays are outfitted with tall windows of varying widths, arranged in an irregular rhythm to create an interesting textural composition when viewed from the street.
