The Blake Apartments

HEWITT’s collaborative architectural and landscape design efforts created value for this new mixed-use development in West Seattle. Adjacent single-family zoning presented a relatively unique design challenge that was resolved through the design review process. Three design alternatives helped illustrate what it would look like to the neighboring residents, including three full landscape architecture plans.

The resulting six-story residential building has a contemporary facade plus street-level retail and below-grade parking. A lush garden courtyard at northeast corner allows for generous sun, light and air for both the building and its neighbors.
