Bridge Way / by Michelle Linden








This is one of my favorite Seattle projects currently under construction. Unfortunately these photos of the Bridge Way Townhomes by Johnston Architects don't really do the project justice. This project is all about the details - simple wood siding delineated with metal strips, custom designed gutters and downspouts, and clean lines. When the project first started construction, I have to admit that I was a little concerned about the form... it seemed like there were an inordinate number of jogs in the concrete formwork. But, I must admit, that these jogs add a welcome relief to an otherwise plain facade. If there had been more material changes, then the jogs would have been too much... but instead they are a nice design element.
