Completed: 2021

This 110,000-square-foot STEM building located at the Seattle University Campus entrance consists of new classrooms, research labs, and makerspaces. Its design and location encourage collaboration and communication between the different colleges. With a brick facade facing the inner portion of campus and a curtain wall facing away from campus, the enclosure encompasses a variety of different systems and elements. Development included partial renovation of two existing buildings.

Projecting roof lines are one element of the unique aspects of the enclosure design. 4EA collaborated closely with the project architects to help Simplify these roof lines and assemblies to achieve slender profiles without compromising insulation and thermal efficiency.
