Best Practice Architecture as Architects

Color and Comfort in the Columbia Tower: Best Practice Creates Vibrant Office for Healthcare Company
Best Practice Architecture creates an office saturated with bright colors and endless working options

Looking to grow their existing office in Seattle’s iconic Columbia Center, text-based primary care provider 98point6 added the 25 th floor to their existing floor of workspace, boasting panoramic views of Downtown Seattle, Elliott Bay, and Mount Rainier. The company selected Best Practice Architecture to tackle the design of the new office, and the result is a vibrant, color-infused space that creates a range of places to work flexibly and is both full of spirit and greenery. Working in tandem with Architect of Record Marvin Yamaguchi, the team created a functional and elevated space for the dynamic company.

 

98point6 delivers on-demand diagnosis and treatment from board-certified physicians via secure messaging. This means the company’s staff consists of a diverse crew of doctors, nurses and UX developers, each with their own needs and workflows. As a result, the 98point6 team asked that the design deliver a range of workspaces to choose from, and for solutions that reduce clutter, create restful, quiet moments and the addition of lush biophilia throughout to enhance a connection to the outdoors.

 

Bright color was a must in this project—coming from the medical field, many team members felt that traditional medical spaces (and even offices) are often generic and almost too neutral. Bursts of color in the library and the surrounding lounges help fight that stereotype. Careful changes in the carpet and saturated furniture create these colorful moments throughout the office and even the bathrooms become fully drenched volumes of color.

 

The program, developed by working closely with the client, includes a large library serving employees on both floors, replete with private lounge areas, a massive collaboration table and informal spaces to work with teammates, as well as a wall of books and games. This space occupies a large chunk of the overall floorplate and takes advantage of stunning views towards Elliott Bay.

 

An important space that became a focus for the design team was the mothers’ room. The diverse staff includes both expectant parents and mothers will small children, to which the design responded with a large, shareable and luxurious space. Full of comfortable furniture and hospitality-grade amenities, velvet privacy curtains and beautiful gradient patterned wallpaper, this essential space was given an especially luxe feel.

 

Best Practice offered a design solution that accommodates not only smooth everyday workflow, but creates a space employees will be welcomed, comfortable, and feel invited to do their best work.
