Model Remodel Office in South Lake Union

Model Remodel’s regular photographer, Cindy Apple, recently shot the office, complete with pictures of our office pug, Wally. It has been fun to share the images of the office, as Model Remodel has been very deliberate about creating a space that matches both the company’s aesthetics and values.

When Model Remodel made plans to move away from its former office in Queen Anne, the company was drawn to the space at 1287 Westlake Ave. N. in South Lake Union. First, it provided a space where the warehouse and office would be connected. Second, the location was central to most projects.

However, the building needed some work. Lucky for Model Remodel, it employs a lot of great builders.

Staff scraped off the tile to fully expose the concrete floors and removed the t-grid ceiling to open the space up. Then, they used a bunch of salvaged materials to keep the remodel sustainable, inexpensive and interesting. The desks are door slabs from a salvage company; the partitions and trim come from salvaged concrete form boards; the barn wood accents come from a deconstruction job on Whidbey Island; and owner Jason Legat salvaged the signs from a throw-away pile off of Nickerson Street. For the Model Remodel logo on the front of the building, the company brought in the same local mural artist who did work on Easy Street Records.
