4980 North Harbor Drive
Miller Hull Partnership, 2009

In October 2018, Miller Hull moved its architecture studio into this vibrant waterfront complex that they had previously designed. The firm has a strong commitment to ecological design and, like their Seattle studio, this space was designed with the intent to become certified with the Living Building Challenge, which asks the question – “What if every single act of design and construction made the world a better place?” The net-zero energy studio is aided by a rooftop PV array and retrofitted with operable windows to take advantage of the cool marine air and reduce energy loads. The interior is finished with healthy, sustainable materials and is filled with daylight and beautiful views of the harbor.

SAT 10AM – 4PM / Self–guided tour / Guided tour every 30 min
