As Seattle and the wider region continues to grow, design teams are continually looking to implement sustainability practices into their projects. The Terry Thomas Building in South Lake Union—designed and occupied by architecture firm Weber Thompson—is a four-story, 40,000 square foot commercial building that looks to reflect environmental sustainability practices and the evolving South Lake Union neighborhood of which it is a part.
2018 marks the ten-year anniversary for the project. In recognition of this milestone, we recently spoke with Kristen Scott, managing partner and senior principal at Weber Thompson, and Myer Harrell, principal and director of sustainability, to discuss the Terry Thomas Building, the importance of sustainable design elements in the project, and what has changed over the last few years—in South Lake Union and the wider region—when it comes to promoting environmental sustainability efforts.
