PROJECT USE:
Single family residential / caretakers unit

PROJECT LOCATION:
Stimson Marina (Ballard neighborhood), Seattle, WA

LOT SIZE/NUMBER OF UNITS:
62,000 sf warehouse roof / one 800sf unit

Millions of square feet of warehouse roofs exist in our cities
Most are occupied only by pigeons and mechanical units

In Seattle, many warehouses are near our waterways and have territorial views of the beautiful Pacific Northwest

This project is one example of what is possible if we look at these forgotten landscapes as new opportunities

SKY RANCH BEST ADDRESSES THESE CRITERIA:
SOLUTIONS:
Rediscovering waterfront property in an industrialized urban setting
PAST FORWARD:
Increasing urban density by rethinking forgotten landscapes
ADAPTABILITY:
It’s a small box on a big box. ….it could be located anywhere
