Historic Name: NAS Seattle Building 138 - Gate House (Main Entrance) Common Name:
Style: Art Deco Neighborhood:
Built By: Year Built: 1942
 
Significance
Built in 1942, the Gatehouse served as an obvious main entrance and security check for the naval air station. Visitors checked in with Navy personnel before being allowed entry. The enclosed bridge spanning the entrance gave Navy personnel better views of approaching vehicles and pedestrians. The Gatehouse replaced an earlier entrance.
 
Appearance
This two-story, Art Deco–style building has an irregular footprint. North and south wings on either side of the main park entrance road (NE 74th St) rise and connect via a narrow, enclosed bridge. The building is oriented to the west and faces Sand Point Way NE. Each wing has a main west entrance. A poured concrete foundation and structure are covered by a flat roof and parapet. Walls are clad with brick veneer. The horizontal character is emphasized by window bands and a cast stone belt course. Metal–framed, multi-lite windows have fixed upper and lower sash with hopper sash between. Window sills are brick or cast stone, depending on location. Alterations include the replacement metal door at the ADA entrance, the southern of the two west entries.
