Stephen Day Architecture PLLC focuses on design, historic preservation, development and environmental sustainability. 

We collaborate with a wide variety of colleagues in realizing great projects.

Stephen Day Architecture News:

Stephen Day Architecture is the preservation architect for the design team that has won an AIA Seattle Honor Award for the historic Anhalt Apartments adaptive re-use project in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood.  We were honored to be part of the group led by Public 47 Architects, in a project developed by our clients Anhalt Apartments LLC and Trinity Real Estate.

Stephen Day Architecture has moved into new offices in the historic Skinner Building in spaces that we designed to work harmoniously with the original 1920's look and feel of this unique sandstone-clad building in the heart of Downtown Seattle.  In re-using original Skinner doors, wood trim, transoms and lighting fixtures discovered in the storage rooms at the Skinner Buiding, we designed the new space to evoke the beauty and character of this remarkable building, designed by renowned architect Robert Reamer.  Reamer also designed the fantastic 5th Avenue Theater (also in the Skinner Building), the Old Faithful Inn at Yellowstone National Park, Lake Quinalt Lodge on the Olympic Peninsula, the Mount Baker Theater in Bellingham, the Fox Theater in Spokane and the 1411 4th Avenue Building in Seattle.

Stephen Day Architecture has been selected as the historic preservation architect and historic properties development consultant, working with RMC Architects and other members of a great project team, as part of the efforts to analyze historic rehabilitation and adpative re-use possibilities for the phenomenal Northern State Hospital complex in Washington State. 

This National Register district includes over 60 contributing features and buildings, set in one of the largest landscpe designs ever realized by the Olmsted Brothers firm of Brookline, MA, dating from 1911-1940's.  Working with Maul Foster & Alongi, the team was assembled by The Port of Skagit County to investigate historic property development options for this unique site covering hundreds of acres, including its own farm complex and several dozen structures executed in variations on Spanish Colonial and Mediterranean Revival architecture.  Stay tuned for more details on this extraordinarily significant site, its history and its future adaptive re-use possibilities.

Stephen Day Architecture has been selected as the lead architect for the Hastings Building/Hastings Landing hotel project, located on the waterfront in the Victorian-era Port Townsend Historic District, a National Register-listed historic area.  Our team, in association with RMC Architects, was selected by the Hastings Estate Company, the legacy owners of this unique 1890-era property, to lead the adaptive re-use of the historic building and a major pier-supported addition.  Our work for this mixed use project involves programming, all aspects of design, National Park Service and City of Port Townsend design reviews, construction documents preparation and construction administration for this pivotal Port Townsend, Washington project.

We also congratulate our clients on the following recent developments: 

The McKinstry Company and its National Preservation Honor Award for the Spokane & Inland Empire Railroad Car Barn Facilities, presented at last year's National Trust for Historic Preservation conference.  Stephen Day Architecture was honored to serve as historic preservation architect for this important project.  Owned and developed by our clients the McKinstry Company, in collaboration with Robert Brewster, this ambitious redevelopment project underscores the direct connections between architecture, prservation and environmental sustainability - a significant historic property restored and redefined for a new era as an innovation center for large and small engineering and high tech companies. The team included the City of Spokane, The McKinstry Company, CTA Architects, DCI Engineers, Lydig Construction, Design Source and Stephen Day Architecture.

Colman Automotive LLC for our listing of their historic 1916 Seattle building on the National Register of Historic Places and approval of its NPS "Part 2" application.  Stephen Day Architecture worked with this innovative client, owned by long time preservation advoctae and developer Michael Malone, in listing this significant example of Seattle's earliest "Auto Row" showroom architecture.  We worked with our clients to craft the Part 2 application in a phased historic rehabilitation of this important building, positioning the project to take advantage of federal rehabilitation tax credits.

Anhalt Apartment LLC and Trinity Real Estate for the recent Historic Seattle neighborhood preservation award, our listing of an iconic Anhalt Apartment Building on the National Register of Historic Places and approval of its NPS "Part 2" application.  This late example of Fred Anhalt's work, located on Seattle's Capitol Hill, is now being re-cast from office use back to its original residential plan and uses.  Stephen Day Architecture is preservation architect for this significant historic rehabilitation and addition, with Public 47 Architects leading the design team.  This project has been crafted with Washington SHPO and NPS input as a federal rehabilitation tax credit project.
