The MODA Apartments project is a seven story 251-unit residential project with commercial uses at street level and three levels of underground parking. The street front was designed to appear like three smaller buildings with intermediate roof top gardens separating the main residential masses. There is also a shared main roof top garden for the residents use.
The units were designed to fit an unmet demand for affordable new construction downtown. The smaller “international” style plans allow for diversity in a market dominated by larger and higher priced units. With units ranging from 300 to 900 square foot lofts, the layouts had to be smart and efficient.
Beacon Hill Apartments
This mixed use project nestles increased residential density into the Beacon Hill neighborhood by blending contemporary and traditional architectural features.
The thirty residential units will be a mix of studios, open 1-bedroooms and 2- bedrooms above the retail spaces on the ground floor. Additionally, there will be a separate entry for the residents as well as designated underground parking.
2708 Franklin Ave Townhomes
This four unit, infill townhome project located in Eastlake features two duplexes. The modern design incorporates the sloped site and includes on-grade parking with alley access. Contemporary aesthetics and generous open windows accentuate the abundant natural light and sweeping lake views.
17th Ave TH
A four-star Built Green project, this four-unit, infill townhouse development is located in a revitalized North Beacon Hill neighborhood and consists of two single-family residences and one duplex. The thoughtful design ensures privacy and glazing for each unit and the mix of exterior materials delineates entries and breaks down the massing of the structures. A central courtyard provides vehicle access while the open concept floor plan maximizes living space and roof decks create a functional amenity space with commanding territorial views.
Located in the vibrant University District NW Urban Center Village, this four story, 47 unit multi-family apartment building provides an anchor for NE 43rd Street and an active transition between vehicular and pedestrian traffic and includes a below-grade 13 stall parking garage.
The design intent was to interpret the community, history and character of the site while focusing on the demographic of student and faculty residents to create economical, efficient and functional studio and open one-bedroom units with a lasting, urban design. Significant, open window allows for ventilation, natural light and city views. Amenities include a courtyard and a garden area.
1350 Alki Condominiums
The new Condominium project is 6 stories: 5 residential above grade level parking. Ample glazing throughout this carefully designed floor plan allow for natural light to reach every part of the unit. The plans include a centrally located elevator for direct “New York” style access to each unit decreasing building common space while maximizing privacy and convenience. The elevator will be equipped with key cards and call buttons for secure access by residents and visitors. Each floor features 2 side by side units with over 1500 gross square feet: 1350 interior square feet with a 150 square foot exterior deck facing the Puget Sound. These smart designs provide room size, layout, and luxury more commonly found in units over 1600 square feet.
This Mixed-Use high rise project features landscaped ground floor retail plaza and 239 modern living apartments with 5 levels of parking. The 12 story structure features private rooftop gardens, efficient, flexible unit plans, & floor to ceiling glass to make the most of the livable area. This design enables a more affordable price point than is found elsewhere in downtown Bellevue. The junior 1-bedroom, two story penthouse & townhouse style units incorporate plenty of in-unit storage, European style kitchens, rolling wall panels and operable windows. Project amenities include environmentally responsible storm water management, green roofs, high efficiency appliances, and performance based building envelope/ HVAC systems.
Galer Condominiums, Seattle, WA
We converted a semi-classical 1920’s building and a nondescript 1950’s brick building to better highlight their individual era and design. The 1920’s building was augmented with new windows, entry details and a custom parapet coping. To accentuate the 1950’s modern style building, we reclad the exterior with a rainscreen system using Hardie and Prodema panels. We completely renovated the building interiors to reflect their era as well.
Azul Condominiums, Seattle, WA
For this conversion, we extensively remodeled the exterior facade using innovative panel material on a rain- screen system. Interior renovations included complete finish upgrades, and bringing up to ADA compliance. We redesigned some units to loft-style multilevel spaces and combined some to create unique floor plans.
This 12-unit project involved several design reviews: local community design review, national historical neighborhood review and City of Seattle review. H+dlT had to balance the needs of the development and the requests of all three reviews. The end product was a marriage of modern design and historic modulation and sense of community.
Design and presentation graphics were all produced in house which allowed for rapid response and a consistent product. The end product was praised by the local design review for sympathy to the existing neighborhood and for pushing the design into the 21st century.
H+dlT was integral in the initial phases of the development, having found the site and creating the base proforma for marketing the project.
