8th West Residence

Project Location: West Queen Ann, Seattle
Project Size: 3,914.0 SqFt
Project Cost: $200.00/SqFt
Project Completed: 2010
Photographer: Josh Meharry

Perched above Elliott Bay on a tiny 2,020 square foot triangular lot on the west side of Queen Ann hill, this new custom residence features almost 3,000 square feet of living space. The form of the house reflects the marine environment below, evoking sails and hulls. Three bedrooms, three and one-half bathrooms, open living, kitchen, and dining spaces, garages, a wine room and a work loft are all incorporated into a gull-wing shell that sits on a solid concrete base.

Generous eating/play terraces face the views of the bay and West Seattle to the southwest while a small sunken garden to the north is designed to celebrate the houses’ rainwater. A large swath of Seattle Parks + Recreation land to the east of the residence was reclaimed and landscaped for use by the residents.
