Sugar Mountain Headquarters
Once a warehouse, Sugar Mountain’s converted building is now the headquarters of Sugar Mountain, parent company of Beecher’s Cheese, Pasta & Co., Maximus Minimus, and their flagship restaurant, The Butcher’s Table.
Located in the South Lake Union neighborhood on Westlake Avenue, the unreinforced masonry and timber building lived its first 100 years as a three-story warehouse (two floors and a basement).
The conversion included a complete seismic retrofit and expansion that provided two additional floors to the structure. A new lateral system of steel braced frames was incorporated into the interior décor, along with strengthening of the heavy timber frame.
The top three floors are office space, and the first floor and basement now house the lively restaurant.
