Rushing projects are honorees of AIA Seattle’s 2019 Honor Awards for Washington Architecture: The Shea and ARTS at King Street Station. The awards were announced at the 69th annual awards ceremony on November 4, 2019.

The Honor Awards provides “important opportunity for the design community to share and celebrate its achievements, both among practitioners and with the community at-large,” according to AIA Seattle. This year 131 projects were submitted, among which 13 awards winners were announced.

The Shea, a 5-story mixed use residential building on the corner of 19th and Mercer in, received an Award of Merit. Rushing provided electrical engineering services for the Capitol Hill project.

ARTS at King Street Station received the Young Voices Selection as well as Honorable Mention. Located in King Street Station in downtown Seattle the project involved renovating the third floor of the building to provide community gathering space as well as offices for the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture. The tenant improvement project (pictured above) extended 17,250 square feet, including gallery space. Rushing provided mechanical and plumbing engineering services for the project as well as lighting design and energy services.

“It was a joy to see all our key, local architecture collaborators in one space, celebrating the success of truly impactful projects in our region. It’s not just about sculptural, timeless structures, but more importantly about how these buildings benefit all people’s lives and the environment,” said Alexandra Ramsden, Rushing principal who attended the event.
