The Granero

Coates Design Seattle Architects as Architects

Certification: LEED© Gold


A growing architecture firm needed a new home … while nearby, a dilapidated old barn called out for a new purpose. Thus, the Granero (Spanish for “barn”) project was born. The existing structure, built in 1978, was used by the local municipality for maintenance and storage: it had a concrete slab, two big garage doors, no windows, and rusted metal siding. Most of the original building’s structural components were re-used, including the floor slab, steel structure, and roofing. Impressively, 90% of the materials that could not be salvaged or re-purposed were recycled, and thus diverted from the landfill.
