Affordable Housing Design Studio
Hello, W E A R E W EB ER TH O M P SO N .
A BO UT
Our Firm Since our founding, Weber Thompson has designed over 10,000 residences in low, midand high-rise structures. Every day, people from all walks of life come home to one of our designs. From young to old, individuals to families of all kinds, from those with lower incomes to the affluent, we are proud to serve the full breadth of our community. This work motivates us; it’s sparks our passion to create. We want to make a difference in people’s lives and in the community. For these homes to be successful, every detail matters. We understand the intimate role these spaces play in people’s lives. To that end, we work with providers to meet the needs of their residents, designing homes that support them in their daily lives by providing healthy places; places of safety and respite that are flexible enough to allow for a wide range of living styles, ages, family sizes and configurations. Equally important, and perhaps more difficult to capture, is the level of personal commitment Weber Thompson, and this team in particular, brings to serving our affordable housing clients. Whether it’s organizing a book drive for the Raven Terrace lending library, building a Tiny House for LIHI, or working through a gazillion permutations of the tax credit programs with Bellwether, Weber Thompson approaches affordable housing as part of our mission. We understand how difficult these projects are and how hard our clients work to serve their communities. We share our clients’ passion and work hard alongside them to create something exceptional for the diverse community that will call each project home. Everyone deserves a stable home that they can be proud of and a place in their community. We understand that we have a chance to make a difference in someone’s life through our work. Designing homes of dignity is a job we take very seriously.

Arbora Court S E AT T L E , WA
Arbora Court is a housing development aimed at mitigating Seattle’s desperate need for affordable housing units large enough to accommodate families. University Christian Church and innovative, affordable housing developer Bellwether Housing teamed up to develop an energy efficient affordable housing community with 40% of the units designed with two or three bedrooms. It includes corner retail dedicated to non-profit businesses and social service agencies, resident and church/public parking, grade-level residential flats and a lush streetscape. The design coalesced through a series of meetings with Bellwether and the Church’s architecture committee and general membership. A sense of home, pride, safety and stability permeates the building in small and large ways. A courtyard for kids is elevated off the alley, bounded by family units and community space, and centered around a significant tree preserved on site. An artful entry ‘legacy’ panel welcomes residents and tells the story of the partnership that made the building possible. Wood-like slats and natural materials create a long-lasting, durable building with a residential feel. The residential flats along 15th Avenue are pulled back from the street to create a vibrant pedestrian-scaled environment with landscaping, entry canopies, patio screens and benches.

Raven Terrace at Yesler Terrace S E AT T L E , WA
Seattle Housing Authority’s Raven Terrace is their first affordable multifamily building completed in Seattle’s Yesler Terrace master planned neighborhood, a community rich in history perched on a hill just minutes from Seattle’s central business district. The residents of the building come from diverse backgrounds with unique needs that were accommodated within the design. To better understand and serve the residents, WT’s design team met multiple times with the neighborhood community group where interpreters helped us dialogue with the many ethnicities present. Through the meetings we were able to tailor the design to the residents. Kitchen openness was adjusted to reflect cultures’ desire to screen cooking from living spaces. Multi-bedroom units were grouped around common areas so residents with families can be near other families. Residents also had a voice in color selection for the building, expressing a preference for muted colors to blend in with the community rather than standout.

Allegro at Columbia City S E AT T L E , WA
Fundamentally, this is a plug and play design. With an eye on the lower construction costs inherent with repetition and a requirement for variation in the community home design variation, Weber Thompson designed three townhouse plans that could be configured in innumerable ways creating a diverse portfolio of buildings for this Rainier Vista Phase Two neighborhood. This design approach created built in construction efficiencies, while the neighborhood still maintains an appropriate degree of visual variety along the street. The site plan flexibility was achieved by detaching the alley loaded garages, creating grade related homes with front and rear yards. The added benefit of private outdoor space â€“ supported with strategic landscape design â€“ differentiates this project from the typical tight urban sites in Seattle. The modular basis of the design also went hand in hand with the more contemporary style of the architecture and playful paint colors. Clean, elegant lines, juxtaposing angles, sustainable materials and a saturated color palette all work together to appeal to a younger, entry-level market.

Mixed-Income High-Rise Housing Feasibility S E AT T L E , WA
In 2014 Weber Thompson worked with Bellwether Housing and Gerding Edlen on a conceptual study to determine the feasibility of a mixed-income high-rise project developed in a non-profit and for profit partnership in downtown Seattle. Several design options were considered resulting in a variety of programmatic combinations ranging from 90 to 200 marketrate apartment units, and 170 to 260 affordable housing units. Additionally, the building would contain offices spaces for Bellwether Housing, program and performance space for Cornish College of the Arts, an arts school adjacent to the site, and an extension for Recovery Café, a non-profit support center serving victims of homelessness and addiction. The study’s most promising configuration placed Cornish programming and office spaces in the podium. Affordable units were located on the lower levels of the tower, and the more desirable upper levels were earmarked for market-rate units. Ultimately, although conceptual, the study determined that a project of this type could indeed prove financially viable.

Southeast Economic Opportunity Center S E AT T L E , WA
The Southeast Economic Opportunity Center (“SEOC”) Campus (“the Campus”), located at the Othello Light Rail Station in Seattle, Washington, is a unique opportunity to create an integrated, multicultural center combining multiple partner organizations to offer educational and business development opportunities, family wage jobs, health care, social services, early childhood education and care, low-income rent-to-own and workforce rental housing, and small business enterprises for shopping, eating and entertainment. The goals of the Campus are to prevent displacement of the historic residents and businesses of Othello, to celebrate and embrace the heritage of the different cultures that comprise the community, and to provide tools and opportunities to guarantee the long-term health and success of the entire community. Weber Thompson is proud to be working with HomeSight, Barrientos | Ryan and the various program partners to provide conceptual design for this exciting project.

South Kirkland TOD K I R K L A N D, WA
The South Kirkland transit oriented development is the first of its kind for the City of Kirkland. It is a public, for-profit, nonprofit partnership utilizing a combination of land use incentives, varied financing and wide reaching partnerships to realize specific public and private development goals. Rising from a concept of community integration, this project brings Kirkland affordable and market-rate housing and wider access to the greater regional transportation system. Weber Thompson worked closely with King County Metro to create the new Park and Ride, including a 530 stall garage, Polygon Northwest on a 181 unit mixed use retail/residential building, and coordinated with Imagine Housing and SMR Architects who designed a 58 unit affordable housing building that incorporated into the mixed use podium. A network of pedestrian linkages, plazas, courts and sidewalks anchor the project to the neighborhood and provide activities for residents and surrounding neighbors. Retail lines 38th Street and activates the gateway plaza which serves as a focal point for the project.
Market rate, mixed-use residential/retail building contains 184 units. The Bellevue / Kirkland boundaries cut through the site, necessitating approval from both jurisdictions, as well as King County Metro Winner of Puget Sound Regional Council Vision 2040 Award SERVICES

Sunset Electric S E AT T L E , WA
Sunset Electric is a twentieth century courtyard building. Expanding on an existing 1926 brick building, this project is a mixed-use residential and commercial structure, wrapped around an open courtyard. The design preserves the original building’s entire masonry façade pairing it with a quieter, non-competing frame; it provides a neutral foil to the historic masonry. Taking cues from the past, the building’s form promotes natural daylighting and passive cooling by organizing a single loaded structure around an open-air courtyard; an extension to an openair lobby that connects to the pedestrian street. A prominent exterior stairwell encourages walking between levels. These strategies create a social focal point for the building while eliminating mechanically-conditioned corridors and common areas promoting through-unit ventilation and allowing operable windows at both ends of most units for daylighting.

A commissioned piece by Claudius Phaedrus covers a wall, made by layered (specific) newspaper much like the building’s former poster art. The artist was inspired by the forest like feeling of the open air courtyard, and created a mural to reflect the feeling of trees, distortion, animals and the ‘urban jungle.’

4730 California S E AT T L E , WA
We love it when a project extends the fabric of a neighborhood and is welcomed with open arms. After working closely with the community, and receiving their overwhelming support, we designed an 88-unit building that brought new retail to a retail Mecca. The new building will continue the existing retail pattern, reflecting the materials and proportions of the surrounding buildings but interpreting them in a modern way with brick and black steel storefronts. The nearly 5,000 sf of retail wraps around the north corner of the building and extends into a new mid-block pedestrian connector. This pass through is generously widened and activated by holding the building back at ground level and lining it with retail, the buildingâ€™s main entry and activity spaces such the tenant amenity and lounge area. A strong corner tower marks the entrance to the connector, with a base that allows for ample seating, and overhead weather protection creating a small enclave that welcomes pedestrians and residents. A second element, above the retail bays, steps back to create landscaped amenities for the apartments at the third level.

Pike Motorworks S E AT T L E , WA
Pike Motorworks creates a focalized mixed-use community within Seattle’s greater Capitol Hill context by emphasizing public open space to create strong ties between the buildings and the surrounding street life. For this project, the site drove everything. A jumble of properties cobbled together to span a full block – touching each street yet controlling only one corner – the architecture needed to create urban passages to be a cohesive development. To that end, our designers turned the project inside out, developing two internal, public, mid-block connectors, north/ south and east/west, lined with live/work, commercial, residential entrances and focused retail, all destined to draw residents and passersby through the project and become a new gathering, shopping space for the greater neighborhood. On Pike Street, the south connector entrance is the former BMW Showroom, a brick and timber structure from 1926 that features a curved entry re-purposed as a focal point for the entire project. Incorporating this structure into the development largely made the project possible by allowing the building to rise an extra story above what the existing zoning would allow.

Elan Uptown Flats S E AT T L E , WA
An important driver of an urban project is how the building engages the street and its pedestrians. The design team for Lower Queen Anne’s Elan Uptown Flats prioritized the sidewalk experience by strategically carving the building’s base to provide breathing room and ample space for landscaping buffers along the live/work units. The design takes security and privacy into account creating graceful transitions between the public street, private stoops, and socially-focused porch where residents can gather.
182 apartments and 14 live/works in two buildings ranging from studios to 3-bedrooms Amenities include a fitness center, roof deck, conference center and private guest suite
This urban porch is the driving concept of the building’s main entry. It creates a welcoming feature entry for the building, reinforces community building and actively and passively engages the public realm at the street corner.
Located in Uptown, a few blocks from Seattle Center and the Space Needle
A clean, modern design marks Elan Uptown Flats. A sophisticated material palette includes stack bond brick masonry, fiber-cement panels in neutral colors, and vertically oriented windows. Interior design, also by Weber Thompson, incorporates rich natural materials and colors.

UCSF Mission Bay Student Housing S A N F R A N C I S CO, WA
This project, named ‘Conspicuous Consumption,’ is all about encouraging creative and feasible approaches to zero net energy (ZNE) building, specifically for mixed-use student housing on a site on the UCSF Mission Bay campus. Weber Thompson partnered with energy consultants at WSP Group to empirically demonstrate that the design would meet ZNE. It does so through reduced loads and intensified user engagement, which is encouraged through highly visible, easy-touse integrated feedback systems. The budget for net-zero energy is tracked and displayed in real time. At an individual level, a smart phone app aids in tracking; at a building level, dynamic color LED lighting highlights the top performing floors; and at a campus level the three buildings’ relative performance is displayed, encouraging competition and conversation. As a result, students and their families actively manage their energy with continual feedback.

Cristalla finds a balance between a glassy, modern high rise and an ornate, highly detailed historic building. The original terra cotta facades of the Crystal Pool Natatorium were identified as a cherished icon by the Belltown community who clamored to have them restored. Honoring this history and neighborhood context were two key driving forces in Cristallaâ€™s design.
425 Fairview Avenue will provide much needed housing in a neighborhood that is suddenly dense with new commercial office buildings. These office buildings contain large-scale tech and biomedical companies slated to add thousands of jobs every year. The current challenge for these employees however, is finding convenient, walkable housing.
LUMAâ€™s clean, modern design works hard to be a good neighbor. A simple, elegant tower rises from the ground at the corner, while a podium wraps the east and west corners extending the lines of the adjacent and nearby lowrise buildings. A heavier, darker element hugs the back of the tower, grounding the project and setting off the lighter, more dominate structure.
Interior Design The world sees the outside of a building. The individual is enriched by the inside. Comfortable, beautiful and highly functional spaces are created by keeping the future inhabitant front of mind, and understanding how they live their life â€“ are they a family? Single? Disabled? Muti-generational? Solid research and grounding in spatial relationships, while not exciting, represent the depth of thought that goes into making a unit a home, and common spaces an inviting extension of that home. Interior design can foster interaction, bring people together and enhance safety, but also create quiet oases of solidarity. Weber Thompsonâ€™s Interior Design Studio has a long history of creating spaces people want to come home to.
