Large curtain wall members in complex configurations were indicative of this 7,000 square foot glazing addition. Mission Glass fabricated and installed numerous sloping facades that carved out lines that mimicked the surrounding hillsides at the North Seattle campus. These were accented by sunshades that were incorporated into large curtain wall expanses, helping to cut down on cooling loads during the warm Seattle summer months while eliminating the need to provide interior shades that would have otherwise cut off the view to the building occupants.
