Ashworth Cottages

Seattle, WA | Architect: Runberg Architecture Group | Completion Date: 2008

Quantum Consulting Engineers provided structural design for a 23,000 SF, 20 unit multi-family residential complex located near Greenlake Park in Seattle, WA. The project, composed of 7 different building styles, is a combination of “cottage-style” and “carriage-style” units, adjacent to two connected common spaces. The goal of the design is to offer the density of a cottage-housing development while keeping to the scale and character of the neighboring single-family homes.

Three cottages front each street, complementing the surrounding single-family homes, with attached one-car garages, porches and craftsman-style entry doors and details. The interior cottages and carriage units front onto the common spaces, each having a large front porch and their own private yard space.

Parking is provided underneath the carriage units, in two recessed parking courts, hiding the parking from the streets and buffering the parking from the common spaces.

The project has achieved a LEED Platinum certification by the US Green Building Council, the first project of this type in Washington to earn this honor.
