Bridges @ 11th consists of three new residential midrise buildings connected by bridges and located on 11th Avenue in Seattle’s active University District.
Bumgardner provided comprehensive Colors, Finishes and Materials Services, including both traditional Interior Design Services, and selection of all exterior colors in collaboration with the Architects, GGLO. Bumgardner selected all interior design elements for the public spaces and units, including plumbing fixtures, appliances, and light fixtures, as well as all interior materials and colors for the 184 units. The public area interior design included furnishings, fixtures and artwork for the Outlook Lounge, Wi-Fi Café, Bike Club and Boom Fitness facility. Bumgardner designed and furnished three model units.
This project is a joint venture with the University of Washington, Seattle Children’s Hospital and Security Properties. Innovation in the medical and scientific research fields drove the colors, finishes, materials and furnishings. The design draws subtle cues from organic, biological and geometric influences and can be seen throughout the project from hexagonal tile, furnishings and to carpets inspired by natural landscapes.
Bumgardner collaborated with the architects to make sure the clean, modern and energetic, yet casual approach was consistently carried through with all materials and colors.
Units are spacious, fresh, and refined. Neutral color schemes and high end finishes including quartz countertops and custom luxury vinyl plank flooring make each unit feel like a high end residence.
The North and Central building lobbies feature sweeping, impressive installations by local artist Celeste Cooning. The Outlook Lounge, located on the top floor, offers a variety of opportunities to relax, socialize, collaborate or work privately. The demonstration kitchen is fully equipped to cook a professional meal for two or host a private event in style. The Wi-Fi Café conveniently located off of the Mews and is an ideal place for students and faculty to watch a movie, study, connect or be inspired by the bustling neighborhood.
