Pike Place Market

To work with historic buildings is to accommodate present needs within culturally valued sites. We improve buildings and sites while enriching their historic qualities.

Pike Place Market, a National Historic District, thrives on small scale commerce within a remarkable place. Through projects such as numerous small scale tenant improvements and the rehabilitation of the Livingston Baker Building, SHKS has sustained the Market’s vitality toward another hundred years of use.

Lively engagement results in extraordinary places.

SHKS Architects finds elegance in necessity, elevating the core principles of each unique site and building project to reflect our clients' aspirations.

Through collaboration, care, craft, and discovery, we reveal architecture's inherent optimism, contributing to our local community and to the global stewardship of natural and built environments.
