The design for Museum House embodies the concept of “creative tension,” it consists of two seemingly leaning towers joined by an elegant, thin bridge, suspended 300 feet above the ground. A grand lobby will showcase rotating art pieces. Shifting screens on the building’s façade will create a pattern inspired by the placement of framed artwork in the Salon of the Frye Museum, allowing residents to interact with the building’s exterior animation.
Part of a broader contribution to the city of Seattle planned with our collaborators at Creative Energy, Museum House will mark the start of an aggressive approach to the climate crisis, to housing diversity, and inspiring design. A community of homes within one of Seattle’s great neighbourhoods. A project that hits well above its weight.
