The maritime history of a Seattle neighborhood was the inspiration behind the design for the AMLI Mark 24 multi-family project in Seattle, WA by GGLO Design. AEP Span’ architectural metal siding was selected to help achieve the design and earn LEED Silver Certification.
“In the heart of the maritime Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, the site was formerly owned by the Jacobsen family, who operated a well-known boating store there,” stated Jon Hall, AIA, Senior Associate at GGLO Design. “Mark 24 pays homage to the Jacobsen legacy with curving forms and contemporary aesthetics reminiscent of hydroplanes, engines, and modern boat design. GGLO used AEP Span metal siding to sculpt the façade with striking colors evoking the power, motion, and shapes of this nautical concept. In addition, using metal siding containing recycled material content assisted with the achievement of LEED Silver certification for Mark 24.”
The 267,341 square foot multi-family project includes 304 units and features AEP Span’s 24-gauge Nu-Wave® Corrugated architectural wall panel in Cool Regal Blue and 22-gauge Prestige Series® wall panel in Cool ZACtique® II. Span-Lok™ hp roof panel in Cool Dark Bronze was used for the canopy application.
The project developer was AMLI Residential of Seattle, WA. The architect was GGLO Design of Seattle, WA. The general contractor was Rafn Construction of Bellevue, WA. The installer was Exterior Wall Systems of Shoreline, WA.
