An artist and an engineer found their dream residence nestled amidst typical Seattle cottages and bungalows in a vibrant downtown neighborhood.
Strategic House Design for Artistic Expression and Natural Connection

Emphasis on Natural Light and Connection to Outdoor Spaces
We focused on enhancing the home’s connection to the gardens and street life, promoting a sense of community and natural beauty. A generous influx of natural light breathes life into the space, fostering an inviting, warm atmosphere.
Simplicity and Clarity in Detailing and Materiality
Our design embraces simplicity and clarity, choosing unfussy detailing and materiality. This choice reflects our respect for the occupants’ vibrant lives, allowing their experiences to take center stage.
