Trace Lofts at 1408 12th Avenue on Capitol Hill was built in 1919 and has enjoyed a colorful history, housing both an athletic equipment company and an order of Tibetan monks. In 2007 it was converted from a vintage warehouse to condos by developer, GTS development, whose projects include Trace North, the Oddfellows building and Solstice Fremont.

Johnson Architecture + Planning designed the renovation to resemble an antique dresser, with a two-story glass-and-steel addition sitting atop the building like a jewelry box blending the past and present. The design also used exposed brick walls and HVAC systems to integrate the modern and historical elements.
