WPI took part in the renovation and expansion of this historic building in the heart of Seattle. It includes an expanded gallery, education spaces, and a park lobby that creates cohesion between the surrounding park and the museum. The exterior of the building has a very unique look and finish, which the owners wanted to maintain. It consists of concrete, masonry and plaster parge coating. WPI knew this would be a delicate and exhaustive process and our team was confident they could handle it. In 2021, WPI received a NWCB Project of the Year award for its work on the Asian Art Museum.


This project proved challenging in a variety of ways, but our crew took the necessary precautions to get the job done right. By doing this the building maintained its historic beauty and character while adding a modern touch that will allow it to stand strong for years to come.
