These doors were so lovely that I focussed on them rather than the large and distinctive octagonal church structure behind them. This building, designed 81 years ago by one of Seattle's most notable architects, Harlan Thomas, was the home of the Seventh Church of Christ, Scientist until this fall. It was under threat of demolition until a 270 member Church of Christ congregation was able to purchase it this fall. The neighborhood is very glad that the structure will remain in lieu of four private homes that were proposed for the site.
