The Logan Building
Seattle, WA

The ten-story Logan Building (1958-59) was one of the firm’s first major projects: an office building incorporating many innovative features that were first for Seattle when it opened in 1959. It was the first glass curtain wall building completed in Seattle and unlike curtain walls of the Norton Building and then later buildings, the Logan Building was the first in Seattle to be designed with operable windows (fabricated by Fentron Industries of Seattle).  Other notable innovative features of the Logan Building, were demountable walls, air conditioning with suspended ceiling incorporating return air plenums, low voltage switches, floor electrical and telephone outlets fed up through the concrete floor slabs, and solar film applied to the windows.
