The Graystone Residential Building in Seattle



The Graystone Residential Building

“Graystone’s design is conceived in three parts, all relating to the surrounding context: the podium level, the tower, and the crown. Comprising the first five floors, the podium level is expressed in ground face CMU masonry, relating to the neighboring historic buildings which average five stories and are typically expressed in stone or brick. The remaining 29 floors take the form of a glass-and-steel tower with horizontal bands divided into four vertical quadrants, which connects visually to the nearby high rises and helps break down the tower’s scale. The iconic roofline offers an elegant addition to the city skyline beyond. Together, the building’s form and exterior palette help Graystone weave into the existing urban fabric, enhancing its connection to the neighborhood.”
