ASSOCIATED STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Lake Washington Institute of Technology  |  Kirkland, Washington
Completed:  2013  |  Construction Cost:  $850,000

The purpose of this project was to improve the visibility of LWIT’s Associated Student Government and Student Programs organizations.  Located in an industrial high-bay space on the East Building Mall and an adjacent public lounge, our design response played off industrial themes specific to the East Building while using highly visible materials, lighting, and audio-visual equipment to attract the attention of passersby.  The space includes reception, conference, catering, private and open offices, and flexible-use work areas to support staff and support collaborative activities. 

Our scope included a media-rich conference facility capable of supporting ASG public events, and convenient power and data receptacles for use by visitors.  Due to the exposed concrete structure and high volume, the project required a high-degree of acoustic control including various absorptive materials and replacement of HVAC fan-driven equipment.
