Casey Family Programs works to influence long-lasting improvements to the safety and success of children, families and the communities where they live. With that mission in mind the CFP management team set out to create a new headquarters for the 217-person foundation and they started by leasing the top three floors of the newly constructed West 8th Building in downtown Seattle. Their goal was to provide multiple opportunities for their employees to engage with each other while maintaining the privacy and discretion necessary in their work. The design team created a three story ‘mixing’ stair that knits the nine different departments together and creates a cohesive community within the new headquarters.
