High Rise, High Charm
Inside Hughes Marino’s
At Home in Downtown Seattle
Welcome to our Seattle gem, where we are ecstatic to be in the heart of Seattle’s bustling downtown. Located on the 25th story of the Russell Investments Center, it’s impossible not to be mesmerized by the most stunning of views that cannot be found anywhere else in downtown Seattle.
From the breathtaking scenery of Mt. Rainier to the Olympic Mountains, you can see it all while overlooking the Puget Sound and the energetic Seattle waterfront down below. Besides the remarkable views, the office portrays a comfortably chic home away from home, while also reflecting the hip and spunky persona of the city.
When Hughes Marino president and COO Shay Hughes set out to design the office, one of her first priorities was to ensure that everyone felt welcome and right at home amongst the warm and charming décor in our chic space. From the bright and cheerful gourmet kitchen with a family style farm table where team members can enjoy lunch with one another, to the cozy living area where guests can thumb through fashion books, our space is perfect for our team and guests alike. We hope you enjoy our playful, inspiring space as much as we do!
My initial inspiration was drawn from a 1960’s Vogue Magazine cover, which epitomized vintage beauty with bright pink and emerald green accents–the perfect aesthetic for our Seattle office. That same cover is showcased in the reception area of our office as a reminder of the inspiration that sparked it all.

It’s in the Details
The first thing you will notice when stepping into our space are the panoramic views and the blue water of the Puget Sound. Our cozy living area features an emerald green couture velvet sofa by Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture, paired with vibrant pink tufted chairs and an oversized black and white ottoman. Vintage Scrabble pieces, whimsical animal accents and coffee trays with clever quotations are sprinkled throughout our space to portray the feel of a five-star hotel, rather than an office.
The 25-foot kitchen features an oversized family farm table, a staple at every Hughes Marino office, complete with vintage wood benches and classic white Eames chairs–perfect for our team to share meals together.
No Hughes Marino office would be complete without fun and bright pieces of art. One conference room is home to two large graffiti pieces by world-renowned artist Crash. A larger-than-life piece by Gary Polonsky–the oversized Starbucks coffee cup with sleeve–perfectly complements our kitchen and highlights one of Seattle’s most successful companies.
By adding pops of color, unique furniture and elements of home, we’ve witnessed firsthand how little details can go a long way to energize any team and office. We hope to inspire businesses in Seattle and across the nation to reimagine their workspace as a way to revitalize their own company culture!
We craft all of our offices with amenities and signature residential design elements that invoke an engaging, stimulating and collaborative environment where our team feels right at home. We have a very familial culture, so ensuring our offices feel like a home away from home for our amazing teammates, clients and the communities we serve is one of our highest priorities.
