Anhalt Renovation + Addition

Seattle, Washington

Converted from an apartment building to office space for Group Health in the 1960’s, the Anhalt building – a 1930’s historic landmark – was restored back to its original residential use as walk-up dwelling units. A new 15-unit apartment was built around a courtyard located between the old and new structures. Below-grade parking connects the new and old. The development is participating in an Energy Code Demonstration Project – an outcome-based approach to energy code compliance designed to encourage the re-use and retrofit of existing buildings. Completed in 2015, the project received the top Seattle AIA Honor Award and Neighborhood Preservation Award from Historic Seattle.
