Architectural Record

Hines Seattle Headquarters

“This ambitious yet grounded approach is manifested in LMN’s design for the Seattle headquarters of global real-estate firm Hines. The recently completed 7,120-square-foot renovation, located on the eighth floor of the historic Modernist Norton Building, was carefully programmed to reduce the impacts of embodied carbon without relying on offsets. This was achieved through conscientious salvage and reuse efforts, including a feature wall made from roughly 1,100 square feet of upcycled wood offcuts and salvaged local wood for a central conference table.”
