An old WWII era house in West Seattle with a very small footprint had one obvious recommendation for a buyer who called us in 2005; a sweeping view of the City of Seattle. The view from the existing house
downtown Seattle, and the bustle of Harbor Island, and Mount Rainer to the south. Working with the existing footprint and foundation, and adding a garage to the west, we created an urban residence of 3925 square feet.
A glass curtain wall that stretches across the east side of the house and turns the south
City of Seattle. A basement designed to house office, theater, an exercise room, and a guest suite supports a main floor with kitchen, dining, and living areas in one open space. Commercial sliding doors allow a 21-foot by 9 foot opening to a cantilevered deck and make the deck a part of the living space
