Seattle Ferry Terminal
The Seattle Ferry Terminal, serving over ten million annual passengers, showcases a lighting design that blends functionality with aesthetic appeal. Central to the design is a strategy of placing backlit yellow panels at key wayfinding points, which guide visitors efficiently and enhance the terminal's vibrant environment.
The design supports the project's sustainability goals with LEED Silver certification. The use of simple yet creatively implemented fixtures highlights the terminal's architectural features, balancing practicality with visual intrigue.
