The world does not need more office space. The world needs collaboration space that will inspire your team to come together and create. Westbank is a practice dedicated to the creation of inspiring environments. We are not a development company, we are a culture company and in our real estate we attempt through many collaborations to find better, more inspiring solutions. We have seen an incredible demand for the creative living and workspace we have become known around the world for and we are committed to continually improving on our work to better serve those who live, work and visit there, or in any way experience them. With First Light, it’s hard to fully express the effect we are producing — it’s all about light and how it makes us feel. Imagine the feeling when first walking into a boathouse at sunrise. Or when you look out onto the water at sunset having seen the light change against the water, as the sun moves across the sky. Until you experience First Light it will be difficult to comprehend the condition we have created there, the quality of the space, the light and the energy it will produce.
If you are looking simply for office space there are dozens of options available to you. If you want an inspiring, sustainable collaboration space in Seattle, have a look.

The concept for the Collaboration Space at First Light is founded upon a sense of openness and immersion in light. Expansive floor plates allow light to permeate each space, while glass artist John Hogan’s veil wraps the podium, diffusing light and transforming views or complementing them, depending on perspectives. Architectural concrete, light oak finishings and glass partitions define open concept layouts.
