Scandinavian signage design in a historic Norwegian neighborhood
Waypoint was honored to work with the Lennar (LMC) team on their crisp two-phase multi-family development, Valdok. Located in the historic Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, Valdok pays homage to Ballard’s Scandinavian roots and was named for the Valdok family who owned the development site, and who emigrated to the US from Norway in 1959. The building celebrates the concept of “hygge” which is defined as “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture).” Waypoint designed, built and installed a custom signage package for this modern, yet warm project to complement the overall interior and exterior design. In addition, Waypoint provided marketing signage for this two phase mid-rise development with 178 (phase I) and 164 units (phase II). Architecture for the project was by CLARK | BARNES and Compass Construction was the GC for Phase I, and LMC was the GC for Phase II.
