SummerHill BelRed

Located in the Bel-Red neighborhood, a subarea of Bellevue, WA, SummerHill BelRed is a 249-unit project adjacent to the future Bel-Red light-rail station. The building massing and architectural design are influenced by the local context – a rapidly transforming neighborhood with industrial roots. Its modern, clean aesthetic references the neighborhood’s industrial past and simultaneously looks to the future of a mixed-use urban, transit-oriented neighborhood.

The organization of the building and amenity areas, as well as the architectural design and expression, are in direct response to this unique location: The upper residential floors consist of horizontal wood paneling mixed with dark windows and black horizontal metal fins; the building’s base includes two metal-clad volumes that link all of the common spaces in the building and create a dialogue between the main entrance and the neighboring light-rail station. Tenant amenities include a courtyard on level two with space to lounge, and a rooftop deck that overlooks downtown Bellevue, Mt. Rainier and beyond.
