The 12-sided inflected tower named 1107, whose shape can be likened to a bowtie or butterfly, acknowledges that the best way to connect with distant, natural features comes by looking diagonally through the rational University District street-grid. 1107 offers a distinct sense of place within the city by echoing nearby outdoor campus spaces, which are also oriented to provide distant vantages.


Access to light and air are necessary considerations when designing with the goal of a porous building. The profile of the building at its base is varied to balance ground-floor programming and engaging outdoor spaces. A small retail court allows for light, air, and brings open space into the site. At the South, the lobby and residential uses are set back from the lot line to let light and air cross through to the alley and support a small residential terrace. Circulation paths also connect to the “porous building” ideal. There are multiple ways for pedestrians, bikes, and vehicles to navigate the site and building from the street and alley.
