Pacific Place TI
Pacific Place is an upscale shopping center in downtown Seattle. BSE was contracted to make the architectural vision for the interior remodel a reality.
This design has many unique elements that required careful consideration and coordination with other disciplines to achieve the desired aesthetic, including changing structural supports and rerouting or creatively accommodating mechanical systems.
The most unique, and challenging, element of this project was the "oculus", a series of unique ceiling panels with continuously changing radii and lighting features surrounding around a mechanical system fire shutter. The open center extends to the atrium space above. Other unique project elements include a two-story wooden fin wall element at the 7th Ave and Olive Way entrance and a series of custom column supports with changing forms to support a green wall system with a unique look at each floor.
