Major Maintenance Project Information
Warren G. Magnuson Park - Comfort Station Renovation


Address: 6500 Sand Point Way NE; Seattle, WA

Current Status

Thank you Seattle! This project is complete. Summer 2010

Construction of the replacement building for the Magnuson Park Beach Comfort Station has reached physical completion and is open for use.

The design by Miller Hayashi Architects received an AIA 2009 Seattle Honor Award for Washington Architecture. The structure marks the legacy of the park as a Navy Airfield with a slender, wing-like structure parallel to the shore and access road.

A continuous metal surface forms both wall and roof, curving up from the land side wall to form a projecting canopy toward the water's edge. This unexpected curve distinguishes the utility of the comfort station and lends grace to the rugged durable materials.

Project Description

Construction begins: Summer 2009
Project complete: Winter 2010

Project will replace the Magnuson Park Beach Comfort Station and Lifegaurd stand.
