MG2 Seattle Headquarters
FUNCTIONAL PRODUCTS FOR A FLUID WORK SPACE
Working with the design team from MG2 on their new Seattle headquarters was a pleasurable experience that fueled both our creative instincts and our flexible nature. The process was a truly collaborative one that resulted in a custom suite of "me" & "we" space specific pieces for the ever-expanding and always on the move architecture & design firm.

FULL SUITE OF RESTAURANT FURNISHINGS
We worked with the design team from Scout Restaurant to create the latest John Henderson eatery in downtown Seattle. The restaurant, located in the recently completed Thompson Hotel, treats patrons to a grown up version of summer camp with odes to boy scouts, macrame and the PNW's favorite fabric - flannel. To complete the design team's vision for a sophisticated yet playful style with natural elements all around, we found ourselves remembering the carefree days of our youthful summers and began from there.

SIX TRUCK LOADS OF SITE SALVAGED WOOD
Site salvage grants immediate history to a space. With the application of usable wood from felled trees on the property, businesses and residents alike are afforded a story that never grows old. We worked with Collins Woerman to salvage six truckloads of Fir from the site that would become the new Group Health. With the logs we were able to craft the architectural wood products and site-furnishing for the healthcare cooperative.

LARGEST LEED CERTIFIED NON-PROFIT BUILDING
We provided 400 pieces including flooring, interior wood walls, countertops and benches for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Visitor Center and campus in Seattle. Crafted with Ash salvaged from local chip yards and glulam beam stock, our fixtures contributed to the green initiative process, with the center becoming the largest LEED certified building in the world at the time of completion.

RETAIL DISPLAY COLLECTION DEVELOPMENT
Over the past few years, we've worked with the design team at Nordstrom Store Planning on their roll-outs. After several brainstorming and concept sessions with the design team, we were able to produce a completely unique and extensive library of fixtures. For simplified ordering, we developed catalogues and price lists complete with individualized item numbers and custom finish options.

BRAND IDENTITY & CONCEPT STORES
Our close-knit working relationship with Starbucks has produced a distinctive line of work that has become synonymous with ethical businesses. This reclaimed Cedar struck an immediate cord with the Starbucks team when we first met to discuss the design of a new store location in Queen Anne. The stock survived a railway fire in the early 1990s that burned nearly 30,000 acres in and around Stampede Pass. Too brittle for commercial use, but too beautiful to let go, the Cedar sat in our log yard until the Starbucks design team fell in love with the material and the story it told. Working with the team, we devised an artful way to repurpose the wood and bring history to a new location for a company who core values coincide with ours.

VALUE ENGINEERING DESIGN FOR NATIONAL ROLL-OUT
We work with clients help them meet their budget by developing unique, value-engineered product lines. We did so for Hilton Garden Inn's Project Grow, a nationwide brand renovation project geared at updating the reception and lobby area. We collaborated with FRCH to value engineer two premium table designs to fit not only their new brand, making their reception and lobby areas contemporary and inviting for guests, but also their budget, making the national roll-out a possibility. Meyer Wells was selected as preferred vendor for the program.
