5300 17th Avenue NW, Seattle, WA

On a side street across from the Swedish Medical Center is this wonderfully intact Wrightian building medical office from 1955. Its flat roof planes, strong horizontality, recessed entrance and materials of brick and stone all speak in a Frank Lloyd Wright-design vocabulary. I was not able to identify the architect and hope someone out there might know? As it is currently for sale and situated just off the main thoroughfare in Ballard, I hope it finds a sympathetic owner who appreciates the uniqueness of the structure.
