Waterfront Research Center in Seattle, Washington by SABArchitects

Thursday, November 24th, 2011

Article source: 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.

The new Woodland Park Zoo West Entrance replaces the old north and west entrances providing amenities and services in an arrangement that allows large numbers of guests to enter the zoo quickly, while maintaining a scale intimate enough to be enjoyed by small groups or individuals.  The zoo entrance is meant to be experienced as a node along a larger path around Woodland Park. With a variety of opportunities for seating or gathering, the plaza is a civic space enjoyed by zoo patrons and the public at large.
