Progress on View Haus 5!

Last week on a sunny Seattle Wednesday, the entire b9 office visited our project with Cascade Built on 25th Ave E.

This project is especially unique because all homes are designed to Passivhaus standards and a few of them will achieve certification. Construction has been rigorous as we’re striving for a completely air tight envelope in order to reduce infiltration and heat loss. So far, all of the framing is completed, every edge and crack is sealed, and we’ve just begun putting up the Barnboard siding.

The project is coming along nicely, and the view of Madison Valley from the rooftop deck is sublime..!


What a summer for b9!

b9 has turned into “b-almost-9″ (coined by Caroline) with 3 new additions to our formerly modest 5-person team.

There has been plenty to do here, and we’ve been keeping ourselves busy with exciting new projects and a new office! But more on the latter, later…

First Thursday at b9 - "Early Bird Special" by Becca Fuhrman

We’re excited to present the work of local Seattle artist and architect-in-training Becca Fuhrman this Thursday, June 5th from 5-8pm!

Come join us for an exhibition opening and reception of “Early Bird Special” – a mixed media portrait series that examines the “typical” characteristics of a beauty portrait that go past the ideal and captures the idiosyncrasies, imperfections, and humanity of its subjects.

Becca Fuhrman studies a wide breadth of art, design, and architecture. Her interest in the human condition, its representation, and experience are the driving force behind her work. She continues to explore these themes within visual communication and representation as a project manager at Studio 216.

We’re located on 210 S. Jackson St in Pioneer Square, and this exhibition is a part of Pioneer Square’s celebrated First Thursday Art Walk. So stop by, and enjoy some great art, soothing wine, and fantastic company!
