Conard Romano Architects

The Bellevue Area Residence sits on a hillside with a west facing terrace and covered porch affording views of Lake Washington. Located in a neighborhood with an unusually restricting height limit, the home enjoys high ceilings in its light-filled, main floor living spaces, as well as in its lower level bedrooms.

Thank you for your interest in our project. The window seat is set within a bay window. There is no recess to the sides of the window. However, there is a slot in the soffit above the window for window treatments.

How low is this window to accommodate the window seat? Would bottom of window at 18 in work?

Thank you for your interest in our project. The bench shown in this photo is ~18" to the top of the cushion. Remember to consider the squishiness of the cushion and the amount that the cushion will compress when sat upon. We recommend trying out the bench/cushion height to confirm that it works for you.

Thank you for your interest in our project. The windows installed on this project were custom wood windows, the manufacturers' info is no longer in our archives.

I don't know about the USA versions of these houses but in Australia most of them are cavity brick walls which are at least 10 inches (250mm) thick and this would not require any false backing. The depth of the reveal as depicted would be correct as such a window is mounted on the exterior brickwork. This mean with the depth shown the shelve would approx 8-10 inches deep.

Thank you for your interest in our project. On this project the window seat is set within a bay window. If it were not, one option would be do have a false back as you suggest.

Becky Harris added this to Getting Cozy: Nooks and Crannies
A perfect spot - grab a book from the library and curl up in the window seat.
Kit Pollard added this to 15 Popular Design Trends on Houzz
15. Window seats. Maybe we all just want a place to curl up, read a book, and gaze out the window.
Margaret Everton added this to Working Outside
And when you can't create a space that resides in that wonderful in-between of indoors and outdoors, do what you can to bring the outdoors in. Windows like these can crank open for fresh air and sound of birds along with that pleasant view.
Kit Pollard added this to Lake House Essentials
All vacation homes should have a few little nooks like this one - peaceful spots to get away, even in a house packed with people.
