Weyerhaeuser’s new Seattle headquarters in Pioneer Square, designed by architect Bill LaPatra, a partner at Mithun Architects, a firm well-known for its emphasis on sustainability.
The building is unusual, because it is almost self-effacing, with the front door opening onto a park-courtyard area, with the building almost hidden behind a line of mature trees. Despite its quiet appearance, this is headquarters for Weyerhaeuser, a major corporate employer.
