Seattle City Attorney’s Office

Before the Seattle City Attorney’s Office moved in Columbia Center, two of their departments were located at City Hall, and one department was housed at the Seattle Municipal Tower. Moving all three divisions of City Attorney’s into three full floors at Columbia Center was no small feat. Clear wayfinding and clever space planning were imperative with such a large tenant. With the addition of brightly colored accent walls (and coordinated carpets), department way-finding became much easier, and a sleek, modern café/lounge allowed these hard-working city employees a place to relax and enjoy the beautiful Seattle skyline.

Why Work With Us?

I have worked with Burgess (Design) in varying capacities for over 20 years.  In addition to great people, I’ve appreciated the design expertise they show for many of the projects we undertake as well as basic tenant improvement projects.  They have also been an excellent building architect managing CAD drawings as well as BOMA.  They provide an excellent service.
