This is a prototype apartment unit built using what is likely the only fabrication system on the market that can be scaled to construct mid-rise buildings. The system is called Sustainable Living Innovations, or SLI, and it was developed during the downturn of the last few years under the leadership of CollinsWoerman and three other firms, McKinstry, Lydig Construction, and DCI Engineers.
Seattle has its fair share of LEED Platinum homes, but this is the first LEED Platinum single-family home in the state of Washington outside of Seattle.

Art Stable is an award-winning project in the Cascade neighborhood of South Lake Union in Seattle. Designed by Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig Architects and developed by Point32, Art Stable includes ground-floor commercial and six live-work lofts (of which only two remain on the market). The project was built on an urban infill site — formerly a horse stable — and cleverly incorporates some of its work-ranch history in the design.
