Waterfront Research Center in Seattle, Washington by SABArchitects

The project building was built in 1926 as a processing facility for the Washington Cooperative Egg and Poultry Association.  After a series of additions and renovations, the building was converted in 1983 to biotechnology laboratories and offices.  When the current owners acquired the building in 2006, it no longer met market standards for top quality lab or office space.  The client’s charge to the design team was to transform the tired building into a world class life science facility that celebrated its Elliott Bay waterfront setting.

Integration is transformation

The Rubem Braga Elevator Complex aims to improve accessibility for the residents of Pavao community, located 80 meters above ground level, in the city of Rio de Janeiro. Not long ago, as in several other Rio de Janeiro neighborhoods, that population experienced the danger of rickety stairways and makeshift passages up and down the slope, not to mention the threat of landslides.

Our proposal was directly influenced by the characteristics of the immediate surroundings of the plot. Through detailed site analysis, we concluded that the most important aspects of context are the landscape and the extreme impact of the rural environment. Therefore, the proposed residence for the elderly, apart from fulfilling all functional prerequisites, must be consistent with those surrounding features.
