Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum


Everett, Wa



The Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum at Paine Field in Everett, WA faced a dilemma - an overflow of vintage airplanes without adequate hangar space. The challenge was to create a cost-effective structure accommodating additional planes while maintaining a seamless visitor experience. While acknowledging that replicating the 1950s hangar's style was impractical, our solution involved a premanufactured metal building. It proved cost-effective, with a design strategy incorporating materials and colors reminiscent of the original hangar. Modern elements like a canopy and entry structures were seamlessly highlight and maximize the visual impact.
