Best Practice Architecture and Brownwork Design

Lucrecia Blanco

Located in the iconic Smith Tower in Seattle, Dolce Vita commands a stunning view of the city waterfront. Originally housing a corporate office space, it was remodeled into a dramatic, lively retail design studio for high end footwear. Working on a limited budget and in a space open to existing pipes and ductwork created challenges for the design team. Low wattage, high color rendering, LED track lights vividly illuminate the dazzling retail displays while simple, decorative fixtures softly reveal the lounge and bar. Design studios are illuminated with a combination of ambient and task lighting to create a quality working environment for the designers.
