Studio19 is excited to have projects been selected for the AIA Seattle Diversity by Design (DbD) exhibit.
Diversity by Design (DbD) is a travelling exhibit organized by AIA Seattle’s Diversity Roundtable. It has been exhibited in the Washington State Capitol Building, Bellevue City Hall, the Washington State Convention Center, Tacoma Convention Center, UW Ethnic Cultural Center, and several other venues. It is next scheduled to go to the AIA Convention 2014 in Chicago on June 26-28, where Studio19’s works will be showcased to design professionals from around the nation.
The two projects selected for the Diversity by Design (DbD) exhibit are Pagoda Village Everett and the Eluri Residence, each in their own way illustrates how Studio19’s design integrates cultures and promotes diversity. More details are available in the project posters.














Studio19 is honored to be selected as the featured firm in the monthly publication of the Capital Projects Office (CPO) at University of Washington. On April 16, Mr. Douglas Jennings from the Capital Projects Office at University of Washington visited Studio19’s office in Pioneer Square for an interview with our principal Hui Tian and project manager Che Fortaleza. During the interview, Hui shared her story of founding this minority and women owned firm in 2009 during the economic downturn, and having the firm grown bigger over the last five years. What’s also been addressed during the interview, and in the CPO article as well, is the importance of diversity in the firm’s daily practice, and how the Studio concept influences our design philosophy.

Developer Lobsang Dargey won a key court decision earlier this month that will let him move forward with a lakefront project in Kirkland.

A King County Superior Court judge ruled that he can build Potala Village at 10th Avenue South and Lake Washington Boulevard Northeast with 143 units and ground-floor retail as he proposed.

Dargey applied for a shoreline substantial development permit with those specifications, but neighbors didn't like the project. The city then adopted more restrictive zoning that would allow only 58 units on the site, and argued in court that because he hadn't yet applied for a building permit, he could be forced to change the project size.

Dargey said in an interview this week that he will talk with the neighbors and could downsize the project somewhat, but he has spent two and a half years on this and wants to get going. “At the end of the day, even though there is strong disagreement with our development, I am trying to compromise as much as possible with neighbors.” He wants to start construction this year.

Studio 19 Architects is designing the project. Dargey's patience and temperament reflect his life story. He was raised in Tibet and grew up on a family farm with no electricity. He later studied to become a buddhist monk.
