Commissioned by the visionary Seattle development firm Dunn + Hobbes, Agnes Lofts was a catalyst for the transformation of Seattle’s Pike/Pine neighborhood. It is frequently cited as a positive example of incremental development.

This infill building is comprised of three double-height residential levels located above a highly transparent commercial base. Each of the 24 residential units has voluminous living space, an expansive two-story window wall, and an open sleeping loft.

With its dynamic façade composition and highly active street level restaurant, Agnes Lofts serves as a neighborhood landmark. It also demonstrates that contemporary buildings can complement the fabric of historic communities.
