Mason & Main are a unique set of buildings located within Seattle’s Little Saigon neighborhood. Retaining the neighborhood’s original character - a place where cultures meet and weave together - the two sibling structures house emerging professionals, forever-renters, downsizing empty nesters, and individuals of all age groups.
A recognition that not everybody has the same needs embodies the spirit of the Mason building; For that reason, each common room and amenity was designed with a different approach, for a different purpose, intended to be used at different times of the day. This innovative design direction lends itself to establishing the amenity spaces inside the Mason building as unique, independent destinations within the larger Mason & Main destination.
The interior of Mason is saturated with subtle references to travel, and the growth of understanding that comes with it. Local art alluding to international styles makes that connection immediately within Mason’s foyer; the colossal, bright, colorful mural by Seattle artist Jazz Brown utilizes multicultural design elements to position the lobby entrance as a residential rendezvous – the village center, so to speak. Paired with the wide array of vibrant colors and intricate textures integrated throughout the building, it’s apparent that Mason offers an assortment of charming, one-of-a-kind locations for residents to come together and foster meaningful connections, all under a single roof. The thoughtful design decisions and unique user accommodations that comprise the destinations-within-the-destination encourage residents and guests alike to embrace the feelings of discovery, wonder, and openness associated with travel, learning, and connecting with other cultures. Though there are many elements inspired by other countries and cultures, Mason blends them together to create a terminus that exclusively reflects the diverse population it houses.
