The Talisman is the first residential apartment addition to Redmond Town Center in Redmond Washington. The design weaves housing, parking and 9400 SF of retail mix-use into an existing parking lot. With context of lower retail and parking structures, we worked within city and Redmond Town center guidelines to break down the massing of the building through a (sub)urban kit of parts. By associating material and massing to anchors, bays, cores and ribbon, an otherwise massive block breaks down into a series of smaller elements.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Client: Lowe Enterprises⁠⠀ Contractor: Compass Construction⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ @talismanapts⁠⠀ @compassgc⁠⠀ Photos: @lokesh.singh.masania (drone photos)⁠⠀ Photos: @robrdeane – other photos⁠⠀ @redmondtowncenter⁠⠀ #multifamily #seattlearchitecture

One of our current projects, Fireside, is situated within the vibrant Roosevelt neighborhood here in Seattle. The proposed 6 story building incorporates a gridded facade, referential of the neighborhood context, and a tapered form. Encapsulated within a super frame, the facade angles back, stepping along the northern face creating depth and shadow at the street front. The 102 unit project includes a large rooftop amenity space, biorention planters, private patios, and improved landscaping throughout the site. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Team:⁠⠀ @tmarchitectseattle⁠⠀ @weismandesigngroup⁠⠀ Renderings @notionworkshop

Along with most of you, we’ve been social distancing. For us that means working from home and moving most of our meetings to videoconference. We quickly realized that with this shift in how we work, it’s important to take time to reach out to one another, to check in on our coworkers and their families as best we can. We are continuing to work, and work through this together.
