Seattle Library – Capitol Hill

Located on Capitol Hill, this branch of Seattle’s Public Library is an urban building, but a stainless steel living trellis mounted to the façade wraps the perimeter with evergreen and deciduous vines and creates a bold entry, evocative of a ship’s prow. Maturing plants have continued to soften the brick facades; exterior walls are illuminated at night behind a veil of greenery. The vertical garden extends inside, flanking a two-story reading room with the same plant-supporting trellis. The entire mounting and growing system was custom designed and fabricated for this project.
