4Culture moved to its offices to the present location in the historic Tashiro Kaplan building in 2005 when the 1908 structure was renovated. The addition of 50 live/work units of artist housing and its designation as an all arts building began the revitalization of the neighborhood. The offices were designed by architect Jay Deguchi of Suyama Peterson Deguchi, with interior furnishings by Lead Pencil Studio. Public Art makes its home on the ground floor while Arts, Heritage and Preservation programs have offices upstairs.

Gallery 4Culture presents monthly exhibitions featuring the work of artists residing in King County who do not have gallery representation. E4C, 4Culture's storefront gallery, presents commissioned or existing digital artwork and 4Culture programming on four monitors with exterior speakers. Artwork for both galleries is selected annually through a jury process.

Leo Berk, Low Ceiling, 2006

Leo Berk's site-specific sculptural lighting fixture, Low Ceiling, explores his interest in volume and transparency using innovative material. Berk worked with a modest budget, simple materials and fastidious craftsmanship to engineer the cloudlike forms that make up the artwork. Low Ceiling complements Lead Pencil Studio's conference table, whose top is a re-purposed Quaker State sign ca. 1930, discovered in a field in eastern Washington. The artwork hovers above the table like the cloud cover often experienced in Seattle, and with its flexible illumination lights the room beautifully.
