Mid-Rise/Mixed-Use Design Studio


We know urban mid-rise. For over 25 years Weber Thompson has been designing highly successful mid-rise multifamily projects within the city’s urban fabric. We understand the market forces, city requirements and complicated technical necessities this type of building demands. This depth of experience allows us to focus on the design and craft a high quality building without busting the budget or schedule. Most of the mid-rise multifamily projects we design have a context – they exist within a community and among buildings that establish design constraints and opportunities. What we design are very much neighborhood buildings. Design in context, sensitive to the scale and character of surrounding buildings, will be essential as your project evolves from planning to architectural design.

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.

Model Unit

I NTER I O R D ES I G N Echoing its history, the lobby features concrete floors, glass walls and heavy metal work reminiscent of a mechanic’s lair. 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.’ A monochromatic palette predominates with jolts of electric yellow in the lightning bolt mosaic at the back of the lobby, and marking unit doors. The courtyard and roof deck are populated with furniture featuring low, clean lines in an array of grays with pops of yellow. Wood details are strewn throughout the building – bedroom barn doors, kitchen shelves, coat hooks and mailroom details – all made locally by Montana Originals from the original building’s reclaimed wood. Units are cleanly designed to take maximum advantage of the oversized windows and provide ample fresh air, as many of the units have windows on both the outside of the building and on the courtyard, enabling natural cross-ventilation. 8

In the residences, large windows – in some units on both the exterior of the building and facing the courtyard – forge a connection with the elements. Above, a rooftop deck with wide vistas of downtown Seattle, Mt. Rainier and Capitol Hill allows residents to dine and play alfresco. With such a connection to the outside, the landscape needed to pay careful attention to creating elegant, welcoming spaces and supporting the project’s ambitious sustainability goals.

Pike Motorworks S E AT T L E , WA

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 and 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.

CO U RT YA R D Crafting a fairly large development around this significant, yet comparatively small, building took respect for both the exterior brick faรงade and the interior volumes which our designers took advantage of to create a high, transparent passage for residents. Rising from the base of the brick structure is a subdued, seven-level building with a quiet, controlled palette, designed to mitigate the size of the project and help the mass recede into the background allowing the complex, engaging pedestrian experience to shine. Anchored by placemaking retail, Pike Motorworks features a flagship Redhook Brewpub at its base. An open catwalk extends over the brewery into the LTD resident lounge for the ultimate social space.

One Lakefront S E AT T L E , WA

Mere steps to Lake Union, the Galer Street Hill Climb, and a short bike or bus ride to Downtown Seattle, Fremont, Wallingford, and the University District – One Lakefront occupies a prime spot with the potential to mark a new era of redevelopment in a transitional neighborhood. These two buildings have been designed as a lakeside residence, taking inspiration from the nautical language for the surrounding marinas. Additionally, the hillside site has resulted in a stepped massing that reflects the rhythm and proportion of the neighborhood, with generous setbacks to create areas of retreat. Along Westlake Ave N, the building is U-shaped with a large, open courtyard facing Lake Union. This creates many active corner units that are ideal for retail. A pavilion sited within the courtyard is a unique design amenity for residents and the neighborhood. This glassy, pedestrian-scaled structure provides views from the street into the courtyard beyond, developing an inside/outside relationship and sense of safety and privacy within.

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. 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. A clean, modern design marks Elan Uptown Flats’ sophisticated material palette which includes stack bond brick masonry, fibercement panels in neutral colors, and vertically oriented windows. Interior design, also by Weber Thompson, incorporates rich natural materials and colors.

The Porch – VR Porch & Lobby View

E X PLO R I N G I NTER I O R S PAC E TH RO U G H V I RTUA L R E A LIT Y The architectural design process uses dialogue, sketching, and physical or 3D modeling to translate the ideas behind the architecture to the project team, clients and community at large. Evaluating the sense of scale and volume of a space can be difficult to convey with drawings and screen-based imagery and full-scale mock-ups can be cost prohibitive. With the emergence of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality visualizations, we are now able to place ourselves “inside the model” to more closely experience architectural space and get visceral feedback for iterative design modeling as well as presentation experiences. For the 2016 Seattle Architecture Foundation Model Exhibit, Weber Thompson used VR to communicate the design of Elan Uptown Flats. Two views were modeled and headsets were provided so exhibit visitors could experience the interior volumes of this yet-to-be completed building through Virtual Reality.

UCSF Mission Bay Student Housing S A N F R A N C I S CO, C A

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.

Received an Honor Award in the 2015 Architecture at Zero Competition

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.

Competition presented by Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and the American Institute of Architects, California Council (AIACC)

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.

1110 Dexter S E AT T L E , WA

Making a quiet statement in South Lake Union’s colorful, rapidly growing Dexter corridor, 1110 Dexter shines through its mature, sophisticated palette and high quality materials. Fronting on Dexter, the building steps down to Highland Drive where it ‘floats’ over a parking area that is being updated with artistic metal screening that ties into the overall design of 1110 Dexter and enhances the adjacent plaza. The overall massing was highly directed by the EDG Board. When presented with three massing options, the board picked parts of each scheme and asked the designer to marry them together. The result is an elegant insertion with dialed in massing proportions that create balance throughout the building. An underlying theme of chevron patterns are prevalent throughout the project, most strongly in the screening, siding, and handrails, and more unusually in the under plane of the rooftop canopy.

Arbora Court S E AT T L E , WA

In Seattle’s University District, University Christian Church and Bellwether Housing teamed up to develop an affordable housing community with units designed specifically for families. Families have a different variety of spatial needs than single individuals, or couples. With a mix of 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom units, it supports safety and security to group these family units together. The building is split into two with a daylight filled central lobby. The family units are all in the south portion, which is organized around a courtyard with a play structure. The north portion contains studios, open one and one bedroom units slightly separated from the often noisy activities of children. Within the family units, many considerations of how families work and play together are investigated. These units tend to have larger central living spaces to accommodate activities ranging from eating to homework. Bedrooms are smaller with efficient storage solutions. Window heights are higher to allow flexible furniture placement to increase floor space and entries are larger to fit strollers and storage for toys, coats, shoes or whatever else families might collect.

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 a building that brought new retail to a retail Mecca. 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 building’s main entry and activity spaces such the tenant amenity and lounge area. This activity follows the entire connector and continues part way along the back of the building with the fitness center, creating eyes on the alley and enhancing safety. The landscaping along here works with the modulation of the building to create a ground plan that successfully integrates both and provides an enhanced amenity to the neighborhood. 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.

I NTER I O R D ES I G N West Seattle is all about big-city amenities with a smalltown vibe, and that’s exactly what residents of 4730 California Avenue enjoy. At seven levels, this 88-unit mixed-use building has got it all, but if that’s not enough, the surrounding neighborhood offers all a person could want and then some. Our designers found themselves drawn to the concepts of the shoreline while conceptualizing the interiors for this project. They’ve found the perfect combination of a modern nautical-inspired design that never approaches kitschy. Rich textures and natural materials such as reclaimed wood contrast high-shine finishes and other utterly modern details to strike a perfect balance. Amenities are in no short supply at 4730 California, which includes a fitness room, rooftop deck, and generous lobby, lounge, and gathering spaces. Lounge

Rooftop Deck

L A N DSC A PE Located in the heart of West Seattle’s tightly-knit ‘Junction,’ the team engaged a diverse group of stakeholders to craft an innovative mid-block connector between the busy retail space of California Ave and an existing alleyway. The team took a huge leap of faith and fully embraced the mid-block connector as an integral part of the design vision. Retail lines the frontage, and the lobby entry is pulled deep into the passageway. Plantings, lighting elements, and seating activate the space and ensure user safety to make this connector a unique amenity and entry threshold for the building.

When the opportunity arose to transform an old gas station on the top of the Hill into a mixed-use building, the Queen Anne community followed closely. In designing Eden Hill, we engaged the neighborhood, incorporating their design guidelines and contextual standards to design a building approved of by both the community and developer. The result is a well proportioned, modern interpretation of an early 20th century, brick building. Working with this high quality material, our designers took special care with the brick, creating visual interest with details such as the corbel at the top of the building. This detail draws the eye and terminates the brick in an elegant manner. The site was originally surrounded by curb cuts in the sidewalk promoting vehicle activity applicable to the gas station, but not retail businesses. The new building provides an activated street facade that promotes pedestrian activity and safety. The enhanced pedestrian environment is supported by the connection made to the nearby Queen Anne Community Center and park.

Phase 1 is currently in documentation with Phase 2 scheduled to start in 2017. Phase 1 contains office, commercial, retail and restaurant spaces with a parking garage beneath and a residential building above. It is the gateway building for the entire development; the first building seen as cars come into downtown Kirkland from I-405. Working within the Kirkland Design Guidelines, it was essential that the design address this gateway proximity and the urban edge of the project while promoting connections throughout the projects to Kirkland downtown and the greater neighborhood.

LUMA

Bernadette Rubio leads Weber Thompson’s Interior Design team. She has over twenty years of experience in space planning, mixed-use commercial and residential environments. Restaurants and hospitality design top her list of favorite project types. For these projects, she believes there is more of a process in understanding who it is one is designing for, and seeing the importance of both aesthetics and functionality. For Bernadette, that process of analysis, problem solving, and collaboration is one of the most enjoyable aspects of her job.
