Inspired by the architecture and neighborhood, the interior concept aims to differentiate the base from the top of the tower, creating a dynamic experience. The ground-level amenities at the tower base feature a rooted, artistic design. In contrast, the top of the distinct glass tower in Seattle’s South Lake Union area is conceptually faceted and ethereal.


The retail component of Skyglass is a co-working space. An industrial steel framework separates a large open room into a series of smaller, more intimate work spaces.

Ethereal light

The roof level lounge space features light and bright finishes to contrast with the warm, darker tones of the base levels. This level embraces its ample daylight, reveling in its warm luxury.

Elevating the everyday

Dreamy finishes and the warm glow of minimalist lighting take a seemingly basic corridor into a new realm.
