The commercial studio at Stuart Silk Architects has been busy designing a new headquarters and retail store for Bedrooms & More. This new 21,000 square foot building will feature a full basement, two floors of retail space and two floors of corporate offices with a penthouse apartment for the owners. This building promises to become a landmark gateway to the Wallingford neighborhood.
Located on a busy arterial, the building responds to the specific needs of the site and mixed uses of the building. The design draws on the urban feeling of the neighborhood while opening the building to the southerly views of Mt. Rainier and downtown Seattle. The facades are careful to be gracious in context but evocative in presence. The street level retail is inviting, with tall storefront windows bringing in light and transparency that showcases the retail frontage. The upper levels, defined by distinctive panels and glass, resolve into interesting exterior and interior spaces that take advantage of the increasing views. The top floor will have office space and a penthouse suite just above the treetops that will have tremendous views overlooking the neighborhood, the city and beyond.
Bedrooms and More will enjoy the features and amenities a new building affords. Some of the key components of this project are:
