the building

For over a century the towering letters of the 'BEMIS' building sign have dominated the skyline just south of Pioneer Square, marking the edge of Seattle’s industrial district.

The building represents a unique industrial artifact with over 45 artist lofts and professional studios spread over 4 floors. The vision for the building's renovation in 1996 was to create spaces where artists could live, work, and exhibit. The footprint of each floor is over 30,000 sq ft with wide 10 ft hallways and tall 18 ft high ceilings, allowing for a great exhibiting space. 

Come explore the historic building and peek into the converted industrial loft spaces and meet the artists.
