The apartment tower at 1310 East Union Street in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood was Miller Hull's first effort at designing multi-family housing. It won six design awards for its clear, Modern aesthetic approach.

Building History

Seattle architectural firm the Miller Hull, Partnership, LLP, designed this seven-story, steel-frame infill apartment block in the city's Capitol Hill neighborhood. It had a starkly Modern and easily readable aesthetic, meant to provide spaces with maximum amounts of light and internal flexiibility. The firm's website described 1310 East Union, as its first urban infill project: "The firm’s first foray into urban multi-family housing contributes a new urban housing paradigm. When designed and built, Seattle’s Pike/Pine corridor was a neighborhood in transition and demanded a unique design response to reflect the edgy and evolving urban character of the surrounding community."
