In the arts center where two of Seattle’s most iconic statues were cast – Fremont’s Lenin and Capitol Hill’s Jimi Hendrix – is the Fremont Foundry; a newly remodeled and unique event space. After nearly a year of renovations and upgrades, the Fremont Foundry boasts multiples spaces that can accommodate parties of all styles and sizes. It is is ideal for either lavish or intimate parties. Natural light from 20-foot skylights fills the main atrium, which has capacity for a 400 person reception, as well as two private suites which are perfect for a breakout session or bridal party retreat.
The venue is divided between two levels with seven distinct spaces that can be used individually or collectively. On the ground floor: the outdoor Courtyard is perfect for cocktail receptions and wedding ceremonies; the main Foundry Studio and Foundry Atrium combine into the main event space with the Green Room and Wedding Suite connected through double doors. Upstairs boasts the Penthouse and Rooftop Decks.
As homage to the old Fremont Fine Arts Foundry who previously occupied the space, the new owners had a grand chandelier commissioned from local iron-workers. It has from the still operational gantry crane that once moved massive smelting pots across the space. Thoughtful design from Graham Baba Architects – of Revel, The Walrus & the Carpenter, Taylor Shellfish & Eltana Bagel Café to name a few – transforms the venue into a warm and welcoming space. In May of this year, a kick-off open house was thrown with all the preferred vendors. We cooked up some tasty bites for guests including sous-vide chicken with morel sauce and caramel hazelnut bars, with floral arrangements provided by Juniper Flowers. It was a wonderful showcase of the space, particularly because the weather cooperated beautifully.
The penthouse – which once was home to artists of the studio – boasts a massive rooftop deck able to host parties of up to 150 guests; perfect for sunny Seattle days. In his spare time, the artist hand carved several of the support beams around the penthouse, literally leaving his mark on the space permanently.
