This house demonstrates the potential of outside-the-box conceptualization and the value of adaptive reuse as applied to a modest, residential program. An existing, gable-roofed farmhouse - built in the early 20th century and located in the rear yard setback – was extensively renovated and repurposed. A 3-story tower was added to the north-west corner, creating two outdoor courtyards and doubling the size of the building. The result is a home that fully engages the site and opens to unexpected views of Lake Union and the city skyline. The original structure contains a family kitchen on the main level and kids rooms above. The tower contains the stair, a sitting room on the ground floor and a 2-story master suite above. A wooden ladder leads to a large roof deck.
