Seattle Architect Erik Mott on the City’s Evolution and Why Minimalism Is a Big Influence
Mr. Mott is the principal design director for the Seattle chapter of Perkins & Will architects and was the design principal for a new luxury tower called The Modern. The building is in the heart of the Belltown neighborhood, the city’s busy downtown. Residences begin on the 13th floor; all amenities are underneath. With stunning views, each residence aims to be a “penthouse” of its own, as each one has tall, floor-to-ceiling windows, and views of Elliot Bay and the Seattle skyline.
