Astro Apartments

Located adjacent to Seattle Center, site of the 1962 World’s Fair and inspired by this Googie architecture, Astro Apartments’ design embraces the space-age futurism aesthetic. Mid-century concepts guided design decisions at every scale, including the overall building form, cantilevering cornices, butterfly roof at the penthouse, façade modulation, signage, and furnishings. The façade treatment creates a dynamic pattern of window openings, stepped storefront mullions, and sculptural precast concrete columns. The lighting and signage detail affirms the signature styling as well. An S-shaped form expresses movement with a planar shift that divides the long facades into smaller, asymmetrical pieces with recessed courtyards.
