A richly textured façade of custom bent metal panels of solid and perforated aluminum transforms the windowless program of high-rise data floors into a sculptural focal point in Seattle’s Denny Triangle neighborhood.  The streetscape at the corner of 6th Avenue and Bell Street is enlivened by fully glazed retail space on both frontages, with glass canopies above providing weather protection and solar access. Concrete elements along the curbside planting strips serve double duty as vehicle barriers and pedestrian seating. At night, subtle LED lighting within the tower’s perforated metal panel skin provides a quiet glow of depth and mystery.
