Situated on top of a sloped backyard in West Seattle, Landing Lantern is a small outdoor structure that provides space for creative thinking and mediation. Built atop of a slab, the structure replaces a deteriorated wooden canopy - the purpose of the previous structure is unknown. 

The floor is elevated above the concrete slab to evoke a feeling of rest and relief. The vertical members are exposed to express the structural integrity of the frame while providing a steady cadence of light. The translucent panels filter in light into and out of the structure, softening the surrounding atmospheric qualities throughout the day and a resembling a lantern at night. 

The East and West ends to the structure are left open for sunrises and fresh air while also providing opportunities for art installations, furniture, and façade options. 
This project is currently in progress.
