'Folded Veil' Apartment Building Planned Next To Olympic Sculpture Park


Martin Selig Real Estate will presents designs from Perkins + Will to the design review board next Tuesday for a proposed 12-story, 100-unit apartment building at 3031 Western Avenue. The concept also include below-grade parking but no commercial space.

Of the three presented options, the preferred version is called the The Folded Veil concept.

The folded veil concept applies the "folded surface" operation of the park to the entire structure by inscribing fold lines to the vertices of the form that are pushed and pulled to "loosen" the feel and impart a gentle sense of movement to a "virtual surface" that veils the building. Designs will be presented for early guidance on March 18 at 5:30 pm at City Hall.
