Saxton Apartments

Seattle, WA

Occupying a full city block, the architecture and urban design simultaneously provide a varying yet cohesive streetscape character on all four streets with each offering unique amenities that mitigate and buffer two high-volume streets. The street edge frontage along Terry Avenue, a city of Seattle Green Street, aligns with the First Hill neighborhood’s Terry Green Street Vision and is home to the building’s primary residential entry. The public amenity and lush plantings along Terry Ave. wrap into the building’s private, central courtyard through an inviting breezeway, creating a sheltered and rich gathering space and central plaza for residents’ social activities. The Sky Terrace is a rooftop gathering place designed for year-round entertainment with amenities to host small and large gatherings, including a fireplace, comfortable site furnishings, outdoor kitchen, and BBQ, with stunning views of Mt. Rainier and downtown Seattle beyond.
