Hiawatha Artworks Lofts

Artworks explores the intersection of affordable, livable communities, and PassiveHaus certification. As Seattle struggles with affordability within the urban center there is a clear need to provide affordable housing for artists. 

The building is composed of 33 sleeping units over 3 floors plus a daylight basement. Each resident will enjoy a storage loft in their unit, a common kitchen on each floor, and a main floor commons including a lounge, kitchen and laundry.
