The Lakeview Office is a newly completed, two-story office building, built with renewable and sustainable construction methods.
Located on a triangular lot at the intersection of Lakeview Drive and Lake Washington Boulevard in Kirkland, Washington, the 46,000 square foot building takes full advantage of the breathtaking views of Lake Washington and the Olympic Mountains.
The west-facing, all-glass façade stretches across both floors. Complete with operable windows, the wall of the building follows the curve of the site. Two first-floor patios take advantage of the open and expansive views, as well as a rooftop deck surrounded by a green living roof.
The north and east façades feature punched window, wood grain and metal panels, creating a modern contrast to the all-glass curtainwall while complementing the neighboring residential landscape.
Using mass timber construction, the building features Dowel Laminated Timber (DLT), which is a mass timber product that utilizes Pacific Northwest Douglas Fir. This method of construction shortened the construction duration.
The roof, rain gardens, and terraces were designed to mitigate water runoff.
Tenant amenities include lockers, showers and bike storage, as well as two levels of underground parking.
