Architecture Planning Interiors
Blake Office Plaza
The twin multi-tenant office buildings are 2-stories and 52,000sq.ft. each. During construction, the buildings were leased to a State of Washington Dept. of Social & Health Services. The structure is steel framing with tilt-up concrete bearing walls. The bearing walls are cast with closely spaced reveal joints simulating cut stone or small concrete panels painted three shades of gray. The slot windows are blue-gray reflective insulated glass with aluminum frames. The window walls combine vision and non-vision glazing matching the slot windows. Between the two buildings is a landscaped courtyard with glazed arbor canopy shelter and seating. Accessible ramping connects the buildings that differ in ground floor grade about 3 feet.
