As one of the most recognized landmarks in the world, the Space Needle’s remodel focused on the preservation and renovation of the 1962 icon.
The renovation updated the structure’s physical systems and elevated the visitor experience by dramatically enhancing the view. Privately funded, the ambitious project heightened the observation deck experience with floor-to-ceiling glass on the interior and exterior to further open up the uninhibited 360-degree views of the Puget Sound. The 500-foot level was reimagined with a first-of-its-kind rotating glass floor revealing never-seen-before downward views of the structure.
In 2022, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) honored the visionaries of the project, Olson Kundig, with the National Architecture Honor Award. See press release for more information about this prestigious award.
