This new interdisciplinary learning center transforms the Olympic College campus—redefining the main entry, completing the pedestrian spine and joining with adjacent academic buildings to form a central quadrangle. The design strengthens visibility of the college’s arts and health programs, fosters synergies between the disciplines and encourages student engagement. At the building’s heart, a three-story atrium reinforces community with layered gathering spaces that connect to specialized studio, simulation, practice and performance venues. Designed as Schacht Aslani Architects. LEED Gold certified. Photos: @k7scott

This month we’re excited to introduce significant projects designed by Schacht Aslani Architects, which has joined our integrated design team at Mithun. The new Cedar River Watershed Headquarters supports the work of Seattle Public Utilities to protect the ecological health of the region’s water supply. The building consolidates operations, natural resources, protection and cultural resources staff into a space that embraces the natural environment, and promotes workforce collaboration and efficiencies. The LEED Gold certified and net-zero energy target design supports resilient operations and limited dependence on the energy grid during harsh winter conditions. Photos: @laraswimmer

Active Learning, Passive House. This new classroom building for @thebushschool Upper School demonstrates their collaborative educational philosophy and ambitious commitment to sustainability. Building and landscape serve as learning laboratories, maximizing natural light and healthy materials, conserving water and energy, and incorporating green stormwater systems. The project is on track to be the first Passive House school on the West Coast and the largest in the country. Net Zero Energy and Salmon-Safe Certification are also targeted.

Happy New Year! We’re entering 2020 with a spring in our step and renewed focus on creating positive change through design. Featured in the photo are townhouse entries at Arras—a new mixed-use residential community in Bellevue’s Spring District, an evolving 36-acre transit oriented development centered on a future light rail station. With a pedestrian scale that puts people first, the project promotes social interaction and healthy living.

UC Irvine’s Middle Earth Expansion weaves a new living-learning community into the larger campus fabric. Two residential towers rise above a mixed use podium and richly landscaped base, echoing the natural form and color of the region’s limestone canyons. Centrally located along the central Ring Road, a primary pedestrian connector on campus, this gateway project offers diverse pathways to access or pass through Middle Earth. Photo: @k7scott
