Design Soiree Series 2017
August - November
Behind the scenes with Seattle designers
Seattle Architecture Foundation (SAF) invites you to experience Seattle’s most unique architectural spaces! From August through October, enjoy exclusive events with designers in some of Seattle’s most interesting homes, design studios and a range of commonly inaccessible spaces. Each festive event includes food, drinks and activities curated by each host — architects, engineers, contractors, artists and more.
While enjoying yourself among colleagues, friends and new acquaintances, feel good knowing you are helping Seattle Architecture Foundation connect thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds to the architecture, design and history of Seattle. Funds raised through these events support the various programs offered by SAF, including exhibits, tours, talks and programs that teach youth how design addresses social issues. SAF reaches more than 6,000 people a year through its programs, events and outreach activities.
Sat, Aug 26 from 5pm - 7pm

Come enjoy a truly unique evening on a LEED Platinum floating home where you will get to drink delicious beer from one of Seattle's premier craft brewers, Cloudburst Brewing, and nibble on tasty treats from a local chef specializing in south Pacific cuisine. Located on the most southern dock on the Eastlake side of Lake Union, the house provides unobstructed views of the Seattle skyline. Multiple sustainable design features such as a solar array, living roof, and floating water gardens, serve to make the house function as efficiently as possible as well as enhance the home’s aesthetic appeal. This is an experience you can only have here in Seattle!
