Smith & Burns – Seattle

Bauhaus Inspired

The main idea for Smith & Burns is that we can still make things, with our hands, like brewing, sawing, and wood crafting. This concept led to including a Craft Room.  In addition to the Craft Room, the building exhibits craftmanship by the re-use of the bricks acquired from the site, in its double story lobby.  What Amy likes the most of this brick it the natural brick color, not painted (which was less costly).  “Having the natural brick color adds value, and nostalgia, to this lobby”- Amy.
