Looking down is part of the point of going up in Seattle’s Space Needle. For visitors to the landmark’s restaurant high above ground, it will be a featured element of dining there, as new renderings show the glass floor with a view 500 feet to what’s below.
The multi-year, $100 million Century Project is under way now at the 55-year-old icon, and the Seattle design firm Olson Kundig has released a series of dramatic images showing what changes to the observation deck and restaurant will look like.
Want a glass of water or wine with your meal? It’ll pair well with the glass tables, chairs, windows and rotating floor in the reimagined space. Dropping a fork in this place is going to be a newsworthy event!
The observation deck above the restaurant will feature floor-to-ceiling glass panels on the interior and exterior to enhance the 360-degree views.
Olson Kundig also shows off cutaway images of the structure. Additional stairways are being added to ease mobility between the restaurant and observation deck.
