Originally opened in 1924, the Fairmont Olympic is one of the oldest, most historic buildings in Seattle. When they embarked on a restoration project, MG2 was selected as the Architect of Record, appointed to oversee the handling of code enforcement, city processes, design reviews, execution, and final delivery.
A choreographed approach to preserving a legacy
Simultaneously navigating ADA regulations and preserving the integrity of vintage finishes, fixtures, and woodwork, MG2 orchestrated the unified collaboration of our team, two additional design firms, a general contractor, and numerous city-wide stakeholders. This choreographed alliance resulted in a stunning renovation design—reflective of both historic culture and modern community—and an enduring partnership between Fairmont and MG2.
