Honorable mention: Small space

Project: Sky Ranch, Seattle

What we love: That the Miller Hull Partnership saw the potential of all these empty rooftops with a view, designing a smart 800-square-foot apartment atop a 62,000-square-foot warehouse roof.

As the architects explain, “This is just one example of what is possible if we look at these forgotten landscapes as new opportunities.” 

Jurors were impressed by how the architects wrangled space away from pigeons and mechanical units while finding a new use for waterfront property in an industrialized setting. They also made note of how the project increased urban density using existing space.

Design: The Miller Hull Partnership, Seattle (206/682-6837)
