The Concept

When WithinSodo was conceived, the Sodo building had existed as a metal shop, an industrial equipment sales location, and a warehouse for furniture storage. The bones were strong, the space open, and the character authentic.  Highlighting the natural materials and creating a “function through form” design was the goal. We wanted to build a space that could adapt to and house a wide variety of events, from an hour long photo shoot to a day long corporate retreat and everything in between. The execution of a “flex space” required careful consideration to conform to as many different concepts as possible. The addition of kitchen and bar facilities as well as a rooftop deck brings an entirely new level of versatility and something unique to the Sodo neighborhood.

The finished space consists of four dividable rooms of 900-1600 square feet each, a 3000 square foot roof deck, five bathrooms, a caterer’s kitchen, three built-in bars (or optional satellite bar), an 20' projection screen and audio ran throughout. With a total capacity of 625 (450 downstairs and 175 upstairs), WithinSodo caters to almost any type of event you can imagine.

We continue to get inspired by WithinSodo and hope that you will too.
