Hillcrest Professional Offices
Construction of Hillcrest Professional Offices in Bothell will be complete in the Fall of 2008. This brick and stone building includes approximately 9,500 square feet for an insurance agency, and a law firm. DYKEMAN provided complete architectural services for the building shell, and the tenant improvements under separate contracts. Building shell design included site planning, permit documents and construction observation. For the major tenant, consisting of roughly 6,000 square feet on two floors, DYKEMAN provided space planning, programming, interior architecture, interior design and furnishings assistance.
The exterior design responds to the historical brick school buildings in close proximity to the site, combining traditional and modern materials to convey feelings of comfort and familiarity. Tall operable windows and interior windows flood individual office spaces with daylight and natural ventilation. In addition to daylight controls required by code, photocell sensors were provided to turn lights on and off, depending on the amount of daylight in the space.
