Broadstone Lexington is a 75-unit apartment building located in Seattle’s First Hill neighborhood. By working through the design evolution with neighbors and community groups, designers and J&S Masonry created a building that responds to its nuanced context without compromising its own identity using masonry as a primary facade material was integral to its success.
The project utilized sand-colored modular brick in a running bond pattern and punctuated the facade with precast concrete window headers, sills and cornices. These elements, plus full brick returns at window openings, create the impression of a legacy masonry building that maintains a unique, modern presence.
