Shoreline Central Market
Shoreline, King Co. WA


When Miles Yanick and Company was asked to design a plan for a supermarket make over,
they opted for a natural, down-to-earth concept that built on the store's fresh produce
theme.   The result is a dynamic shopping environment with unique character and
approachability which earned the City Council Community Beautification Award from the
City of Shoreline.
Having worked with the owner previously on the award-winning Central Market in Poulsbo,
WA the staff at MYCO had a pretty good idea of the client's vision.  However, this project was
not new construction as the previous market, but rather a difficult redesign and connection
of two existing buildings into one cohesive structure to form the anchor to an outdated
1970's style shopping suburban center in north Seattle.  The integration of the interior
merchandising concept with the expression of that concept on the exterior plan became the
key design challenge and ultimately the real success of this design.
At the request of the owner, a Feng Shui study was conducted to improve the interior
energy.  Feng Shui is the Chinese philosophy of arranging the elements of a program within
an environment to influence the flow of chi, or energy.  The consultant made
recommendations to harmonize the floor plan.
