Project Description

The brick masonry surfaces of the Mt. Baker Station provide a durable and easily maintained material that withstands the heavy pedestrian traffic that uses Seattle's light rail transit system every day. This material also provides a visual connection to the community's much-loved historic landmark, Franklin High School, which is located adjacent to the station. The back-lit glass block panels beneath the stairs illuminate the ticketing concourse at street level with a warm glow that compliments the artwork applied to the underside of the guideway. The brick and glass block masonry of the Beacon Hill Station headhouses are fundamental materials that provide longevity, durability, and ease of maintenance for a building that experiences heavy pedestrian traffic around the clock. They also give designers a means to inform the public about the building's context as well as its functions. The back-lit, glass block panels above the elevators choreograph the movement of the cabs and enliven the plaza entrance to this deep tunnel light rail station.
