Pioneer Square, Seattle is known for its abundant amount of restaurants, bars, distilleries, nightlife and underground city. Beneath Pioneer Square is the Underground City. The Underground City is 31 blocks of the original Seattle which were destroyed in the fire of 1889. Pioneer Square has been in the initial stages of revitalization, which explains why it has been increasingly appealing to business owners and public spaces. By drawing from the surrounding context, reworking the abandoned metropole building’s function and playing with the building’s facade, Seattle Spit Whiskey Company was created. Unlike other whiskey distilleries in the area, Seattle Spit captures, filters, and purifies rainwater that falls on the roof and uses it to produce whiskey. In order to transform how whiskey is made, transformations had to be made to the new facility. Starting with the ground floor, a subtraction in the building’s facade was made and carried through to the adjacent alleyway to divide the footprint into a distillery, water treatment center, and cafe on one side, and a lobby for residents on the other. In the basement, the addition of a restaurant and bar took place while whiskey and water storage was created. By opening a wall in the basement level, a passage way to the Seattle Underground was created, making the building a stopping point in the occurring tours. On the second level, the addition of classrooms, a lecture space, and lab spaces creates a learning environment for individuals interested in culinary and distillery education. Lastly, the third level is reserved for residences. Four apartments are designed to provide comfortable living spaces while giving residences access to a green roof and the space between the metal screen facade that protrudes past the existing building envelope.
