The Story

With the creation of JUXT in the fast-growing South Lake Union district of Seattle, Holland Partners wanted to honor the neighborhood’s industrial past, celebrate its tech-oriented present, and look to its promising future. We were immediately inspired by the Seattle neighborhood’s reputation for innovation which dates back more than a century. So, we created an art collection full of both historic artifacts and contemporary artworks which convey character as original as the neighborhood itself.

The lake-facing lobby features artifacts from the area’s manufacturing past: ropes from the logging and fishing industry, an anchor to represent boat building, a steering wheel from a Model T, baskets and soap boxes from commercial laundries, found historic postcards, and the original blueprints from the site’s former bottling plant, to name a few. The 8th Avenue entrance showcases innovative sculptural materials and processes, geometric abstractions in handmade paper, and contemporary photography. Throughout the building, the combination of artworks and artifacts inspire playful, unexpected moments, creating a real sense of timelessness and place for all who have the luxury to reside at JUXT.

Our ability to create authentic experiences for our guests is a key differentiator against our competition, and the art program that NINE dot ARTS created is a prime example.
