Seattle’s newest 5th Avenue tower resides in the heart of the city’s Belltown District adjacent to the historic Cinerama Theater.  The 50-year old theater, also owned by Vulcan Real Estate and the tower developer, contributed much to the inspiration of the Martin’s architecture.  From the bright red Cinerama graphic fin to the look and feel of the interior spaces, The Martin reverberates with that theater mystique.

An installation by environmental artist Ned Kahn encloses the above-grade parking garage with 10,280 perforated stainless steel animated panels that are activated by occasional breezes.

Work completed while at Callison, LLC.
