Artful Proportions in Elevations, Rich Variety in Cladding

When all is said and done, architecture is more of an art than it is a technical discipline or a convention-al business. James Cheng is renowned amongst fellow architects for his intuitive sense of proportion and his ability to compose complex building elements into a unified whole, which seems inevitable in retrospect, but is actually the product of repeated and intense design cycles. For First Light, there is a relation of the tiniest details – a window mullion or door handle – to the visual language of the entire building. This visual care and artfulness will set First Light apart from its Seattle neighbors.
