Haven of Reflection

Olson Kundig as Architects

This condominium in downtown Seattle has a spectacular view of the city, Puget Sound, and the Olympic Mountains beyond. However, the original interior didn’t do justice to the unit’s sweeping views of Elliott Bay. A significant structural renovation and complete overhaul of the finishes and furnishings fulfilled the owner’s request for a spare but warm and welcoming living space that celebrates the view of the bay beyond.

 

A new reflective wall on the back of the main living area gives a sense of space and reflects the amazing view on the other side. Rather than make the reflective wall entirely of plain mirrors, Olson sought a subtler expression that went into the realm of arts and crafts. To create the effect, sheets of glass were layered over stainless steel that had been blowtorched, turning them toasty brown. Olson also designed most of the furniture to unify the environment.

 

“Like a Japanese garden, each experience in the space sets you up for the next one. You have to work your way down the hall to reach the view and the light.” –Jim Olson, FAIA, Design Principal
