来自建筑师的描述。NorthEdge是一栋坐落于华盛顿州西雅图市 Wallingford街区的高科技办公楼 ，大楼总面积达19328平方米。
建筑的设计灵感源自附近的 Gasworks公园，它曾是城市燃气设施的所在地，如今公园内仍遗留了许多上世纪的设备。因此 NorthEdge从公园现有材料中选取了与当地工业气息相符的粗木和现代化材质。

It’s design inspiration came from the adjacent Gasworks Park, which was former home to the city’s municipal gas works. The park today contains much of the original 1900s machinery. The rustic and modern materials selected for NorthEdge harmonizes with materials found at the park to celebrate the area’s industrial past.
Perkins+Will’s design approach focuses on a single four-story building with stepped forms and natural coloration to enhance and transform a site that, until recently, was a derelict and contaminated brownfield.
The building is organized around a 38-foot wide central outdoor court comprised of a series of small roof terraces and walkways that step down the site toward the lake. Developed on a challenging 60-foot terrace, Perkins+Will’s design strategically stacks all four floors of the building along the grade to take advantage of nearby views. The lobby creates a multi-story link that is highly transparent to frame views for pedestrians who also have access to a public roof terrace.
The building is certified LEED-Silver by the U.S. Green Building Council. The construction phase included substantial water conservation and clean up to improve water quality in the near and long-term
Product Description.One of the principal materials used on this project was weathered steel (A606), often referred to by its trademark name Cor-Ten. The panels were pre-weathered off-site for six months and used in a rainscreen application. Thoughtful detailing sought to minimize oxidation run-off including providing sill flashing with river rock to help filter any residue.
