Pagliacci Madison 

At a nexus of busy arterials across from Washington Park Arboretum, Pagliacci's artisan pizzeria and delivery kitchen is a compact composition of glass, dark brick, white stucco, variegated wood and bright signage. The building received LEED Gold certification in 2013; the first stand-alone pizzeria in Seattle to achieve it.

The decision to reduce environmental impacts through sustainable design came early in the process. The building envelope is 45% more efficient than ASHRAE standard, LED lighting 55% more efficient. The building uses strategically placed windows and skylights to minimize lighting loads and maximize daylighting. By investing in building performance and function, energy saving design, and green site strategies, Pagliacci’s Madison Park pizzeria rehabilitated a former brownfield (the site had been home to both a gas station and dry cleaner) and negotiated environmentally critical steep slopes as well as a utility main that crisscrosses the parcel.
