Hangar 128 Clubhouse

The 200-unit apartment complex is located on a site north of Seattle near Boeing's headquarters, and as a result many of the residents are employed by the aviation giant. Inspired by this, we designed the renovation of a 1980s clubhouse around a theme focusing on the history of airplane construction.

In the new residents' lounge, a dramatic tall space that was a long unused racquetball court, we installed large new windows and doors that open onto a pool area, and custom light fixtures that recall the design and construction of the Wright brothers' first airplanes.

We converted an unused racquetball court into a new community lounge that opens onto an existing pool

We added an exterior stair for 24-hour access to a community fitness center on the existing upper level.

Our design for the new stairs is a mix of vertical grain fir and perforated steel panels, both with a simple clear coat finish to showcase their natural characteristics

We kept an existing post modern cupola structure, and clad it in corrugated steel.  A new axial concrete entry path acts as a "runway" inviting guests into the renovated space
