A big week for The Terry Thomas and Weber Thompson

Terry Thomas Architecture

In the first week of November we had the honor of winning three awards for our work. At three different gala events, each put on by three different organizations, Weber Thompson projects were recognized for their design, use of materials and sustainability.

  • AIA 2008 Honor Awards for Washington State Architecture, Perform/Transform: The Terry Thomas  was awarded a commendation award in the Built category during a ceremony attended by the Puget Sound architecture community. Jurors comments were: “This building is innovative in the quality of its interior spaces and its forward-thinking relationship to energy use. The quality of daylight in the interior spaces is particularly unique for an office environment, and provides flexibility in the case of future energy limitations.” They also praised the courtyard for blurring the public and private realm and reinforcing a sense of community.
  • NAIOP Night of the Stars: At the Washington State Chapter of the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties’ (NAIOP) annual Gala, The Terry Thomas was named Washington State’s Sustainable Development of the Year. The Terry Thomas project team, including the owner, contractor and engineer, was in attendance, in their black tie splendor, to accept the award.
  • Masonry Institute of Washington: EdenHill, a brick, mixed-use development located at the top of Queen Anne Hill, was given a commendation award for a commercial building between $250,000 and $1,000,000. Both Weber Thompson and Sterling Construction were honored for this building. Eden Hill is pursuing LEED-CS Silver certification.

These three awards capped a very full year, especially for The Terry Thomas. We are looking forward to entering our second year in this tremendous building.
