An urban infill live/work project in the rapidly developing South Lake Union neighborhood of Seattle. The site is a former horse stable and today is a seven-story mixed-use building. Units were designed to accommodate flexibility in use and changes over time, and are zoned for both residential and commercial use. Large hinged windows open to provide natural ventilation throughout the units. The building’s shell and core are built to last 100+ years. Geothermal loops were inserted into the building’s structural piles, resulting in an innovative and highly energy-efficient radiant heating and cooling system. This is one of the first projects to use this type of geothermal system in the country.

Art Stable received a 2011 AIA Housing Award and was named Residential Architect Magazine’s 2011 Project of the Year through their design awards program.
