1.0 OVERVIEW1.0OverviewThe purpose of the Airport Dining and RetailDesign Guidelines (“Design Guidelines”)is to provide quality standards andcommunicate an overall design aestheticfor dining and retail development atSeattle-Tacoma International Airport(“Sea-Tac Airport”). These design criteriaestablish minimum acceptable standardsof design applicable to all dining and retailestablishments throughout the airport,and all improvements; promoting worldclass design, innovation and regionalawareness. In all areas of the airport,the dining and retail spaces reflect anoverarching design influence and identity.8REVISED 07/18/2017

1.0 OVERVIEW“.taking their design cuesfrom architectural details andelements commonly found inSeattle and the Northwest.”The Design Guidelines are intended toprovide a unifying theme for the entireairport dining and retail offering at theSea-Tac Airport. This program embracesthe qualities of the Northwest by blendingthe vitality of a vibrant marketplace withthe area’s natural beauty, internationalorientation, local arts and culture. TheCentral Terminal at Sea-Tac Airport wasconceived and designed as an “outdoor”marketplace and downtown streetscape.SEA-TAC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT / / DINING & RETAIL DESIGN GUIDELINES / / REVISED 07/18/2017The marketplace approach also includesthe retail activity on the “boulevards” ofthe various concourses, each one having aunique offering of food and merchandise.Retail storefronts are designed to havethe look and feel of building façades,taking their design cues from architecturaldetails and elements commonly found inSeattle and the Northwest.In addition, these guidelines addressacceptable materials, closure, signage andlighting, all of which reinforce the intentof the comprehensive design philosophyof the airport.1 // OVERVIEW9

1.0 OVERVIEW“.blending the vitality of a vibrantmarketplace with the area’s naturalbeauty, international orientation,local arts and culture.”Whether an airport-unique concept,or a nationally-recognized brand, thedesign of each tenant space must followthese standards in order to ensure aconsistent design aesthetic and qualitythroughout the airport. Brand conceptswith a recognizable look should adjusttheir design to ensure compatibility withthe modern Northwest design aesthetic.However, it is equally important that eachtenant space be given its own character andindividual expression through the creativeuse of approved materials, signage andlighting. The airport encourages creativedesign solutions, particularly those thatreinforce a unique concept and brand. The10best creative design solutions will reflectthe brand concept, but be appropriatelyrevised to address the regional style asdescribed here, resulting in maximizedsales potential for the tenant.Every design is evaluated on its individualmerits for approval. Design concepts thatappear generic and are without relevanceto the Northwest design aesthetic will notbe accepted.Dining and retail operators, along withtheir architects, interior designers, andcontractors are encouraged to contact theirAirport Dining and Retail representativeprior to beginning conceptual design workREVISED 07/18/2017

1.0 OVERVIEWto discuss specific design related questionsand/or concepts.The Port of Seattle (“Port”) follows a specificprocess for both design and construction.This process is outlined in the TenantDesign and Construction Process - TenantManual, which can be obtained onlineat: aspx. Theseare intended to be used with other Portregulations and standards. All aspects ofthe space and tenant improvements aresubject to approval from the Port. Designreview and approval is at the discretionof the Airport Dining and Retail Group.In addition, all designs must receive thenecessary approvals from governingauthorities such as the Port of Seattle FireDepartment and Sea-Tac Airport BuildingDepartment.SEA-TAC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT / / DINING & RETAIL DESIGN GUIDELINES / / REVISED 07/18/20171 // OVERVIEW11

2Design Vision

1.0 INTRODUCTION2.1OVERVIEW2.1IntroductionThe Design Guidelines are intended to be bothinspiring and practical. They articulate the Portof Seattle’s vision for dining and retail design atSea-Tac Airport, providing clear design criteriafor design teams to follow on all projects in orderto assure that design concepts developed meetthe Port’s expectations. The guidelines also aim tofoster creativity by providing a flexible framework– allowing for new discoveries and appropriateresponses to each project’s unique conditions.14REVISED 07/18/2017

2.1 INTRODUCTION1.0 OVERVIEWThe Design Guidelines are intended to:1 Articulate the design vision of Sea-TacAirport as a premier, world-class airportand establish a conceptual foundation forall airport dining and retail projects.2 Outline the design strategies and providefundamental principles to guide projectteams in the design of each project.3 Illustrate the unique elements of theProgressive Northwest Modern architecturalstyle and demonstrate how existingdesigns within the region relate to theairport’s design vision and strategies.4 Provide a clear basis for design reviews bythe Design Review Committee, which hasresponsibility for reviewing the design of allprojects at Sea-Tac Airport to assure compliancewith these and other related guidelines.SEA-TAC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT / / DINING & RETAIL DESIGN GUIDELINES / / REVISED 07/18/20172 / / D1 E/S/ I GONV EVRI VS I OEWN15

1.0 VISION2.2OVERVIEW2.2VisionThis section provides the overall visual designapproach for dining and retail at Sea-Tac Airport. Thegoal is to design airport dining and retail in a stylethat reflects the character, attitude and environmentof the Northwest. Designs that respond to thesecriteria will be a blend of “progressive modernarchitecture” and the “regional influences” foundin the natural environment and cultures of the area.The style is termed Progressive Northwest Modern.A more in depth explanation and exploration of thisstyle is provided throughout these guidelines.2.2A Fundamental PrinciplesThe fundamental approach of the design vision atSea-Tac Airport is a commitment to “ProgressiveModernism” and the passenger experience.Design solutions should be:» Responsive to traveler needsConsistently enhances the quality of the travelerexperience, both functionally and aesthetically.» Open and engagingForms an inspiring and visually engagingenvironment for the vibrant activity of the airport.» Forward-lookingConveys a progressive image appropriate to thedynamic nature of air travel and to the innovativespirit of the Northwest.» Integrate innovative technologyEnables high quality service.» Clear and elegant, with honestlyexpressed structure and materialsAchieves a design clarity that is easilyunderstood and appreciated.» Light and freshEnhance the sense of openness and assure asense of consistency and continuity within theairport.» A well-integrated creative expressionRelates to the immediate project’s surroundingsand to the airport as a whole.» Regionally appropriateEvolves from an insightful response to the uniquequalities of the Northwest environment andculture.16REVISED 07/18/2017

2.2A FUNDAMENTAL1.0PRINCIPLESOVERVIEWBy combining three areas of inspiration – culture,nature, and environmental awareness – travelerswill come to recognize Sea-Tac Airport for itshigh quality facility, environmental sensitivity,and distinctive regional character. This vision alsoprovides a wide array of design solutions applicableto any dining and retail concept while ensuringappropriateness for the airport.There are many examples of design and architecturearound the region, and at Sea-Tac Airport, whichreflect this approach. The rest of this sectionprovides a graphic library of such work.Progressive Northwest ModernismSEA-TAC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT / / DINING & RETAIL DESIGN GUIDELINES / / REVISED 07/18/20172 / / D1 E/S/ I GONV EVRI VS I OEWN17

1.02.2BOVERVIEWELEMENTS OF NORTHWEST ARCHITECTURE2.2B Elements ofNorthwest ArchitectureThere are a variety of distinguishing characteristicsthat when combined create the ProgressiveNorthwest Modern style. The following list providesan introduction to these characteristics.» Open» Light, Warm, Inviting» Human Scale» Cultural Influence» Honest Expression of Materials» Exposed Form and Structure» Color and Texture Achieved Through MaterialsWhile it is encouraged, it is not required thateach design embrace all of these characteristics.A characteristic used independently will notcreate the desired result; only a design integratinga combination of these characteristics willachieve the Progressive Northwest Modern style.A key reason for this style requirement is to achievea unified image for Sea-Tac Airport. As you mightexpect, one can find many examples of eachcharacteristic throughout the Seattle-Tacoma areaand at Sea-Tac Airport itself. The rest of this sectiondefines each of the characteristics in greater detailwith examples from the area.1818-1REVISED 07/18/2017

2.2B ELEMENTS OF NORTHWEST ARCHITECTURE1.0 OVERVIEWOpenDesigns should be open and welcoming. Oneneedn’t go far to find an example of “open”. TheGina Marie Lindsey Arrivals Hall at the airport is aperfect example of this and a perfect example ofProgressive Northwest Modern style (see image19-1).The overall look and feel is open and light. Theexposed vertical structure at the window wall takesits inspiration from the trees for which the PacificNorthwest region is known. In addition, the windowwall is divided into smaller, more human-scaled,panes than technology requires—all elements inProgressive Northwest Modern design. This opencharacteristic also applies to dining and retailestablishments (see image 18-1).Exposed structure is a common element found inProgressive Northwest Modern style architecture.Rather than concealing how elements aresupported, designers take a more honest approachby allowing the visibility of structural components.The Seattle City Hall building, image 22.1, is anothergood example.19-1SEA-TAC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT / / DINING & RETAIL DESIGN GUIDELINES / / REVISED 07/18/20172 / / D1 E/S/ I GONV EVRI VS I OEWN19

1.0 OVERVIEW2.2BELEMENTS OF NORTHWEST ARCHITECTURELight, Warm, InvitingLight, softer palettes and a warm overall inviting feelare common Progressive Northwest Modern designtraits. Natural light is also a prized element in theNorthwest and should be incorporated wheneverpossible into the planning of a space. In theinstance of an exterior wall within a tenant space,natural light should be allowed to enter into thespace and whenever possible allow views out. Andwhile windows out to the airfield aren’t practicalfor all locations, a light overall palette should beconsidered. The lighter palette also adds to thefeeling of an open and inviting space (see image20-1).20-120REVISED 07/18/2017

2.2B ELEMENTS OF NORTHWEST ARCHITECTURE1.0 OVERVIEWHuman Scale21 - 2Detailing objects to have a smaller, more humanscale is a common feature of the ProgressiveNorthwest Modern style. The Seattle City Hall is anice example of this (see image 21-1). The buildingis a collection of large strong planes. These planesare then broken up into more human-scaledproportions. This characteristic can be seen in theentry vestibule at the columns in Starbucks (seeimage 21-2) or the store front windows in image21-3. The change in scale increases the textural andvisual interest.21-121 - 3SEA-TAC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT / / DINING & RETAIL DESIGN GUIDELINES / / REVISED 07/18/20172 / / D1 E/S/ I GONV EVRI VS I OEWN21

1.02.2BOVERVIEWELEMENTS OF NORTHWEST ARCHITECTURECultural InfluenceThe culture of the region is influenced by manythings—the native populations, the cultures of theearly settlers such as the Scandinavians and thenewer immigrant communities such as the largeAsian population. In addition, the culture is also areflection of the natural features of the region –mountains, water and landscaping.The façade of the Seattle City Hall is responsiveto these influences (see image 22-1). There is amodern interpretation of Asian influence with theexposed structural elements on the façade, such asthe light shelves and the screen-like window wall.There is prominent use of natural stone materialsand exposed steel. Exposed structure and slopedplanes owe some of their origin to Asian influenceand are now part of Northwest design.As noted earlier, the Northwest color palette issofter than in other regions and typical retailenvironments. A single bold color statement isachieved with the translucent red glass wall at thebase. The color is not applied, but integral to thematerial, allowing a strong color accent withoutdeviating from the Progressive Northwest Modernstyle. Designers are encouraged to apply theseprinciples whenever possible (see images 22-2 and22-3).2222-222-322-1REVISED 07/18/2017

2.2B ELEMENTS OF NORTHWEST ARCHITECTURE1.0 OVERVIEWHonest Expression of MaterialsThe honest expression of materials is requiredin design at Sea-Tac Airport. It is found in manyexamples of Progressive Northwest Modern design;the Pioneer Square Fire Station is an example ofthis, utilizing exposed corrugated metal as the finishbuilding surface (see image 23-1). This example alsotakes advantage of a soft Northwest color paletteand oversized entrances articulated into morehuman-scale proportions.23 - 2At Sea-Tac Airport, this same expression of materialsis used to enrich the textural experience, such as thehard reflective surfaces of glass and terrazzo at thecentral terminal or the softer, warmer use of woodat Beechers (see images 23-2 and 23-3).23-123 - 3SEA-TAC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT / / DINING & RETAIL DESIGN GUIDELINES / / REVISED 07/18/20172 / / D1 E/S/ I GONV EVRI VS I OEWN23

1.0 OVERVIEW2.2BELEMENTS OF NORTHWEST ARCHITECTUREExposed Form and StructureExposed structure is a trait of Progressive NorthwestModern style architecture. Rather than concealinghow elements are supported, designers take amore honest approach by allowing the visibility ofstructural components. This can be seen throughoutthe region such as in the façade at a local cafe (seeimage 24-1). In another example a large retailerin Seattle also combines a variety of structuralcomponents in the detailing of their exterior façade(see image 24-2).24-2This design feature is also used in many places atSea-Tac Airport. The great glass wall of the mainterminal has a completely exposed structural systemusing machined fittings and cables to create theopen view (see image 23-3).“Structural honesty” is more than just a way toadorn a façade. It also should be carried out inall the detailing of a space. A typical aluminumwindow system hides the structural aspect of themembers but images 24-2 and 24-3 show a moreexposed approach. See images 25-1, 25-2 and 25-3for examples of storefronts that follow the morearticulated structural approach.24-124-324-324REVISED 07/18/2017

2.2B ELEMENTS OF NORTHWEST ARCHITECTURE1.0 OVERVIEWAnother regional element where exposed structureis commonly seen is street-level canopies usedto protect pedestrians from weather. The airportencourages the use of canopies in storefrontsbecause they are consistent with the marketplace/street retail theme. A canopy also adds a strongvisual element and improves travelers’ sight lines tothe shop or restaurant. There are numerous canopyexamples throughout the region as well as in SeaTac Airport. Typically, the canopy design will exposethe structure rather than hide it (see images 25-1through 25-3).25 - 225-1Dilettante Chocolates and Anthony’s both usecanopies with exposed structure to visually identifythe entry into their spaces. These canopies areconsistent with a Progressive Northwest Modernstyle and makes them easier to spot from a distanceor down a concourse.25- 3SEA-TAC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT / / DINING & RETAIL DESIGN GUIDELINES / / REVISED 07/18/20172 / / D1 E/S/ I GONV EVRI VS I OEWN25

1.0 OVERVIEW2.2BELEMENTS OF NORTHWEST ARCHITECTUREColor and Texture Through MaterialsThe choice of color and materials is one of the mostsuccessful ways to achieve a strong relationshipwith the natural environment of the Northwest indining and retail design. Materials that reveal theirnatural color and texture are highly encouraged.Stone, polished concrete, metal and wood are allgood examples of materials that fit this category.A relationship to the natural environment canbe achieved in a variety of ways. Where naturalmaterials are not the most appropriate choice foran overall application, they can be introduced as adetail as shown in this building façade (see image26-1). There are many good examples of naturalmaterials used in design at the airport as well (seeimage 26-2).The colors of the Northwest are unique. Unlike thecolors of other geographical regions, the colorsof the Northwest are a bit muted and subdued.Softer, grayed tones are common and as alreadystated, most color is achieved through the materialused rather than the surface applied.26-12626-2REVISED 07/18/2017

2.2B ELEMENTS OF NORTHWEST ARCHITECTURE1.0 OVERVIEWWith the exception of signage, bold, bright, primarycolors are not typical and should be used only asan accent, not as a main feature. If bright color isintegral to a concept, it should be included whilestill reflecting the natural inspiration of the region.Vino Volo executes this in an exemplary manner(see image 27-1). A core signature brand element ofVino Volo is the blood red bar top and tables. Thebold and dramatic color is achieved through stainedwood, adding color, texture and warmth to thespace (see image 27-2).27- 1SEA-TAC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT / / DINING & RETAIL DESIGN GUIDELINES / / REVISED 07/18/201727-22 / / D1 E/S/ I GONV EVRI VS I OEWN27

1.0 OVERVIEW2.2CELEMENTS OF NORTHWEST SIGNAGE2.2C Elements of Northwest SignageSignage is a key component of a brand statement.It needs to be considered as part of the designfrom the first conceptual idea through to the finalconstruction drawings. The signage design shouldnot only serve to identify a brand or product offering,but also add to the overall creative expression of thespace. To accomplish this objective, it must adhereto the same overarching design principles outlinedin this section. Like the architecture of the region,there are certain elements of signage design thatreflect the marketplace concept and the regionalfeel. When applied appropriately, the signage canfurther the expression of the Progressive NorthwestModern design style.Signage at Sea-Tac Airport is divided into four maincategories that are described in detail in Chapter4: Airport Standards. This section is focused on thedesign approach for a tenant’s main identity signage.Just as structural honesty is key to the architectureof the region, it is also key to signage design. “Can”or “box” style signs with fully illuminated acrylicface panels are the antithesis of this characteristicand while commonly used by retailers, they arenot allowed at the airport. Rather, signage shouldbe transparent in how it is constructed with thestructural characteristics of the sign exposed.Examples of this signage design can be foundthroughout the region.2828-1REVISED 07/18/2017

2.2C ELEMENTS OF NORTHWEST1.0 OVERVIEWSIGNAGEPossibly the most notable example is the iconic mainsign at the Pike Place Market (see image 28-1). Thesign is supported by an open structure as opposedto the more typical solid back surface. In addition,the letters have an open face with exposed neon,unlike the more common approach of concealedneon behind an acrylic face.One of the best examples of identity signage inthe Progressive Northwest Modern style is at theSeattle Art Museum (see images 29-4 and 29-5).The exposed letterforms are isolated from thefaçade, post-mounted perpendicularly on minimalstructure to create a “floating” appearance. Thissimple execution of the identity is visually striking,clean, proportionally sophisticated and perfectlyProgressive Northwest Modern.29-129-229- 429-329 - 5SEA-TAC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT / / DINING & RETAIL DESIGN GUIDELINES / / REVISED 07/18/2017Unique shapes for marquee signs are anothercommon feature supporting both the honestexpression of the sign and the “marketplace”theme, which should flavor all of the locations atSea-Tac Airport (see images 29-1, 29-2 and 29-3).2 / / D1 E/S/ I GONV EVRI VS I OEWN29

1.0 SUMMARY2.3OVERVIEW2.3SummaryAll of these elements and design strategiesare intended to help tenants produce designsthat supports their brand strategy. When theseguidelines are followed, the result will be a designwith an honest regional flavor, modern simplicityand consumer appeal.To avoid overly cliché Northwest concepts,designers should:1 Be more creative than design concepts builtaround the Space Needle or Mount Rainier, forexample; designs should reflect the Northwest,not be used to imitate the Northwest.2 Be more creative than simply using replicas ofNorthwest landmarks. Using icons in a subtleway is clever, fun and acceptable, but simplyadding a model of Mount Rainier does notsubstitute for true Northwest design influence.3 Use photographs sparingly and wisely, if atall. Photographs of Northwest icons are likereplicas—adding them to a concept doesnot translate into Northwest design.30REVISED 07/18/2017

3Space Planning

3.1 INTRODUCTION3.1IntroductionWhen planning space within a unit, operators shouldconsider fixture layout, merchandising, sight lines,queuing and back-of-house configuration. Effectivespace planning will aid customer flow, visibility,create a logical path of discovery and increase sales.3.2Fixture LayoutThe interior layout must provide a minimum aislewidth to meet ADA requirements throughout thespace. Operators should give thoughtful considerationto creating ample space for wheeled luggage. Studiesshow that a lack of adequate space for wheeledluggage results in fewer customers entering the spaceand lower sales volumes.More so than in other types of operations, themerchandising layout for convenience retail mustbalance product/fixture quantities with travel aislesfor customers with carry-on luggage. Fixture heightsshould be graduated with lower fixtures in the frontof the store working toward higher fixtures in theback. Provide additional lighting on the back wall tovisually pull customers through the store.3434-1REVISED 07/18/2017

3.3 MERCHANDISING3.3MerchandisingThe Port encourages a creative approach tomerchandise display and use of window space.Look for unique merchandising opportunities thatare visually striking and approachable for travelers.For example, visual abundance makes a powerfulstatement for food just as color blocking does forproduct. Innovative merchandising displays shoulduse materials and detailing that complement thestorefront design and reinforce brand identity. ThePort encourages operators to take advantage of highceiling spaces where available for design, displayand merchandising purposes.35-1Visually striking & approachableSEA-TAC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT / / DINING & RETAIL DESIGN GUIDELINES / / REVISED 07/18/201735- 2A restaurant operator should give particularattention to the creative display of food, beveragesand packaged items. There may be no betterexample of product merchandising than at the PikePlace Market (see image on page 8). The objective isto create an impression of freshness. For example,the Port encourages the use of pastry racks, glassdeli and freezer cases, along with fresh food andbeverages on crushed ice. The visual organizationof equipment in the space, as well as its function inserving areas also is important.Concourses B, C and D are narrower than otherparts of the airport and become very crowdedduring peak periods. Designs must account for theseconstraints to facilitate the flow of customers in andout of the space.V I ENW2 / / S PA1C/E/ POLVAENR NG35

3.4 SIGHT LINES3.4Sight LinesIn the design of a space, it is important to identifythe best possible sight lines from the primarycirculation path to all merchandised areas withpriority for signage, entry and key merchandisecategories, in that order.It is just as important to consider what should not beseen. Views from public spaces into back-of-houseareas are to be avoided. Operators are required todesign adequate trash-handling facilities for theirbusinesses to prevent trash from being exposed topublic view within their spaces.36-136REVISED 07/18/2017

3.5 QUEUING3.5QueuingFood and beverage operators are required toprovide adequate customer queuing areas withintheir spaces (see image 37-1). Travelers cannotqueue into other terminal areas or crowd intoadjoining spaces. Proposed queuing areas for RetailMerchandising Units (RMUs) and kiosks must bereviewed and approved by the Port.3.6Back-of-house37- 1Space allotted to the back-of-house functions inretail spaces, such as storage rooms and offices,should be minimized. The industry standard is7% - 10% of a space for back of house functions.Sightlines into back of house areas should beminimized. The selection and detailing of doors thatlead to back of house areas should be consideredcarefully.There is limited remote storage space for tenantuse available in the airport. While there areno design standards for these remote storagespaces, operators should consult with the Portrepresentative for assistance. In addition, operatorswill be required to consult with the Port FireDepartment regarding the quantity and type ofmaterials to be stored.SEA-TAC INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT / / DINING & RETAIL DESIGN GUIDELINES / / REVISED 07/18/2017V I ENW2 / / S PA1C/E/ POLVAENR NG37

4Airport Standards

1.04.1 OVERVIEWINTRODUCTION4.1IntroductionThese guidelines are provided to furnishDesigners with general intent and direction whenapproaching a Retail space at Sea-Tac Airport.This section also covers how the design needsto respond to different space layouts due to thephysical architecture of the concourses and mainterminal. Additionally, section 4.9 covers the Port’sspecifications on environmental managementand sustainability.4.2Storefront OverviewOpeningDesign ApproachThe tenant storefront opening is the area definedas the clear horizontal distance between twoneutral piers and vertically as the distance fromthe finished floor to the existing Concourse ceilingor soffit above. The tenant storefront opening actsas the transition between the tenant space and theconcourse. The tenant storefront opening varies inwidth and height at each tenant location.The Port encourages tenants to use large threedimensional portal type entrances/storefronts andsignage designs to clearly brand their space whilekeeping with the character of the terminal and theNorthwest Modern theme.Tenant Lease LineThe tenant lease line is the dividing line betweenthe tenant space and the concourse. Typically, theneutral piers and storefront are in line with thetenant lease line, but not always. Verify the exactlease line location as shown on the lease outlinedrawings (LOD) provided by the Port.Storefronts must adhere to the following design criteria:1 Storefronts should be primarily open to createeasy customer access (see image 40-1).2 Storefronts should conform to the ProgressiveNorthwest Modern guidelines set forth inthe preceding section. Cliché themes orgimmicky components will not be approved.3 Façade treatments must extend across thefull width of the storefront (typically fromneutral pier to neutral pier, dependingon site conditions) (see image 40-2).The
