REVEALING THE SOUL OF A LANDMARK
Mithun’s renovation of Pier 56 reveals and celebrates the soul of this century-old landmark. Open spaces respect the fabric of the historic structure and integrate the firm’s activities, catalyzing design dialogue and innovation.
CULTIVATING IDEAS AND WELLNESS
Project teams work in multi-disciplinary groups connected by a central Main Street and a host of flexible conference, collaboration and maker spaces. Natural finishes, visible building systems and amenities support occupant health and comfort, from hand-operated clerestory windows to locker rooms for bike commuters.
EMBRACING PLACE AND FUTURE
The experience is timeless and of this place – animated by timber structure, natural light, breezes from Elliott Bay, and views across the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains. A resilient landmark and agile workplace for the future, Pier 56 provides a critical link between the past and future on Seattle’s evolving waterfront.
