The Allen Institute is dedicated to answering some of the biggest questions in bioscience and accelerating research worldwide. Our team was privileged to support this meaningful mission and to help create the Allen Institute’s new headquarters, a 270,000-square-foot life sciences building in South Lake Union, Seattle’s biotechnology hub. It’s a home for international collaboration and the advancement of neuro and cell science, as well as a striking, purpose-built structure that looks nothing like a traditional lab.
