HISTORIC FLIGHT – EVERETT, WA
Sited at the southwest corner of Paine Field, the 50,000sf hangar museum houses an extraordinary collection of operating historic aircraft. The project includes 40,000sf of hangar/exhibit space, a 50 seat orientation theater, an upper level lounge and exterior deck, and a restoration viewing area. Like the vintage aircraft of the classic era of 1930’s and 40’s aviation, Historic Flight incorporates rigorous attention to aesthetics, durability, and honestly expressed materials. Sustainable design features include extensive daylighting, natural ventilation, and use of recycled materials. ORA also led the design for the extended Kilo 6 campus, including 16 acres of site work and two corporate hangars totaling an additional 50,000sf. The Kilo 6 campus construction commenced in late 2007.
