In the heart of Bellevue, overlooking Lake Washington and the Seattle skyline, is the Lincoln Square hotel and residential expansion. The project included 11 stories for the W hotel and 28 stories of luxury apartments.
The lobbies and lounges feature multiple gypsum wallboard design elements as well as a full array of plasters: stucco, DEFS, Venetian and veneer.
The W Bellevue was designed to have the feel of a modern lake house.
A special challenge of this project was the enormous amount of details needed to incorporate the different types of drywall sheathing and finishes. All interior framing elements were individually designed and given their own stamped engineering drawing. This required detailed planning, including full-scale mock-ups of every variety of hotel and residential room, which were constructed off-site before any tower construction began.
Judge’s comment: “The contractor was held to the highest standard and met every demand.”
