A two-level penthouse designed by Mark Reddington, the architect behind Benaroya Hall, home of the Seattle Symphony, is now for sale. Originally listed in May of this year for $2.1 million, the price dropped to $1.9 million in September in an effort to renew interest from potential buyers.
Reddington not only designed the home, but also once owned it. He is currently a partner at LMN Architects, and his focus there is on enhancing the public realm through excellence in design. He and his team have worked on everything from the waterfront convention center in Vancouver, BC, to McCaw Hall, another Seattle performance venue, to a 100-story tower proposed for downtown Seattle.
All told, he has won 120 national and international awards for architecture, urban design and sustainability.
The sub-penthouse features two decks and a fully opening west wall for views of downtown Seattle, Elliott Bay, Pike Place Market and the Olympic Mountains.
The listing on Sotheby’s International Realty describes the home as a “gallery-like space” with a minimalist aesthetic, and we can see why — it’s got plenty of open areas, clean white surfaces and gleaming accents.
Not everybody has the opportunity to live in a penthouse designed by a famous Seattle architect. Now’s your chance to grab a piece of design history!
