Crafting intimate, context-specific spaces for modern living
Located in Seattle’s Eastlake neighborhood, Sola 16 features airy, light-filled 2-bedrom units designed to suit both urban families and tech-sector roommates alike. The 4-story structure is located a block from a commercial district and a public elementary school. The project achieved a Built Green 4-star rating, incorporating photovoltaic panels (PV) to feed back into the electrical grid.
Schemata guided Sola 16 through the city of Seattle’s Streamlined Design Review process in order to gain an additional 10% of building length adjustment and maximize the allowable FAR for the site. As part of this review, Sola16 was subject to the city’s Design Guidelines. Particular attention was paid to the transition between residence and street, and the building-to-street relationship was designed to create opportunities for people to interact.
