Project: Oakes Street Apartment
Location: Tacoma, Washington
Client: Hill & Sons Development
Completed: 1999

Located in the center of Tacoma’s Arts and Entertainment District on 6th Ave, this building with sixteen units is nestled on a side street just off of a neighborhood commercial area, which provides restaurants, clubs, and many other amenities and services within walking distance or by a short drive.

The design reflects the turn-of-the-20th century look of the neighborhood, while still being a modern style building with parking tucked away and accessed by the rear alley. Large windows that look out onto the existing residential tree-lined street provide connection to the neighborhood, as well as allow for surveillance of the street.

Natural lighting is easily attained through the multiple large windows. These one and two bedroom units are laid out thoughtfully with spacious kitchens, living areas, and bedrooms. Each unit has its own washer and dryer.
