Bosworth Hoedemaker
Architects & Building Designers
Montlake craftsman-hall


This remodel of an architect’s Seattle bungalow goes beyond simple renovation. It starts with the idea that, once completed, the house should look as if had been built that way originally. At the same time, it recognizes that the way a house was built in 1926 is not for the way we live today. Architectural pop-outs serve as window seats or garden windows. The living room and dinning room have been opened up to create a larger, more flexible space for living and entertaining. The ceiling in the central vestibule was lifted up through the roof and topped with a skylight that provides daylight to the middle of the house. The broken-down garage in the back was transformed into a light-filled office space that the owner-architect refers to as the “studiolo.” Bosworth raised the roof of the stuidiolo by three feet, making the volume more generous, ensuring that light from the north would not be blocked by the neighboring house and trees, and improving the relationship between the studiolo and the house and courtyard.

A good one to sample for this effect is Benjamin Moore's Bennington Gray.

Martha Stewart always uses templates to figure out how to hang things before getting a bunch of nail holes in the wall- I always say I'm going to do it her way but then just start hammering willy-nilly!

Take the time to educate yourself about your treasures. This will allow you to share your knowledge of a specific region and its culture.
A collection of art strayed from the "only at eye-level" norm, and garnered reader attention as a result.

nicneu studio - fine art & wall decor added this to Article: Make the most of your hallway - turn it into an art gallery
December 13, 2013
If your hallway is small with lots of doorways, don’t despair – you can likely fit some smaller pieces by hanging them in a vertical line, as in this space. So get going, think about how you can turn your hall into your personal art gallery. In my next entry, I will expand on this concept for staircases. If you have a stairway that you’ve converted into a gallery, drop me a line and send me a photo to consider including it! As always, I welcome your opinions on these solutions and your ideas.
