The City of Kent hired Floisand Studio to design a multi-use building for the City’s signature Town Square Plaza. The 1,260 SF building was to house fountain pump equipment, chemical storage, an electrical vault with transformer, and public restrooms. Located in a liquefaction zone, the project required extensive systems coordination with structural, geotechnical, fountain and mechanical consultants as well as local utility PSE.
The building's structural brick walls, which had to be easy to maintain, were to be encased in a metal scrim that would support native, climbing plants and serve as a backdrop to the existing plaza and fountain.
