Metropolitan Market, affectionately referred to by patrons as Met Market, is a gourmet grocery offering hand-selected food items from around the world, with a focus on local flavors, brands, and suppliers. It was founded on a culture of curiosity and respect for quality with a food-forward approach that has defined their philosophy since the beginning. Met Market store shelves are stocked with unique treasures of the highest quality, right next to the products you’d expect to find in a grocery store — one of the many qualities that make any trip to Met Market a truly special shopping experience.
Cushing Terrell provided architectural, interior design, lighting design and electrical engineering services for the new flagship store at the Sammamish Village shopping center. Design services were provided in collaboration with other local design consultants, J.R. Abbott Construction and the Sammamish Village Landlord, TRF Pacific. The Sammamish Village development is built on a unique, steeply sloped project site and many design decisions required extensive coordination and collaboration with the landlord team.
Metropolitan Market leadership inspired our design team to curate a contemporary space that showcases the grocer’s gourmet, hand-selected food offerings from around the world. A warm color palette comprised of authentic materials creates an elegant background for food and houseware displays throughout the store, wood (specifically cedar) adds texture and links back Sammamish’s logging history, and customers are offered a more intimate opportunity to relax and enjoy their fare at the Market Café and mezzanine.
