This project was selected as a winner in AIA's 2023 Architecture Awards.
For Washington state’s first ferry terminal in nearly four decades, LMN Architects makes its initial appearance in this year’s AIA Architecture Awards with an updated transit hub in Mukilteo, a thriving urban nexus along State Route 525. The resulting Mukilteo Multimodal Ferry Terminal occupies a former brownfield site that, after an archaeological investigation, was unearthed as the location of the 1855 Point Elliott Treaty signing, which secured hunting and fishing rights for 30 Native American tribes in the Puget Sound region. Mindful of the site’s historical gravity, LMN collaborated with Coast Salish Tribes to infuse the 23,710-square-foot civic project with environmental and cultural sensitivities that honor the area’s distinctive atmosphere.
With its rectilinear mass evoking the form of a traditional longhouse, the cedar-clad terminal opens with a sunlit waiting room that features expansive shoreline views and gleaming display cases of artifacts and Coast Salish artworks. Thanks to intuitive wayfinding, travelers move easily through the building, which secures 40% of its electrical needs via a photovoltaic array on the roof. LMN’s design team also paired ample vehicle accommodation with a pedestrian pathway into downtown Mukilteo, maximizing the terminal’s accessibility for locals and visitors alike.
