Building Description

Seattle Unity architect rendering

The Seattle Unity building, designed by world-renowned architects Olson Kundig, is located in the heart of South Lake Union overlooking Denny Park and is scheduled to open summer 2022. The inviting and contemporary design with clean lines, straight-forward functional solutions, and interplay of light and warm materials serves as a beautiful canvas for events and celebrations.

The venue features a variety of spaces including a sanctuary with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Denny Park and a comprehensive AV system, a Unity Hall reception space with a full commercial kitchen and third floor terrace with views of the park and Space Needle, as well as a variety of conference rooms and quiet spaces for reflection. The picturesque building offers countless spaces for beautiful photography moments perfect for weddings and special events – with a skylight and floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the building, natural light is bountiful.  The venue also offers an underground parking garage and easy access to free neighborhood parking in evenings and on the weekends.

This gem in the heart of South Lake Union is perfect for celebrations, meetings, and gatherings of all kinds. We offer memorial, christening, and wedding ministry services at our location and elsewhere.
