This residence was designed for a young builder and his family and includes four bedrooms, a design studio, garage, and open living and dining areas, which are integrated into a modern "bungalow". The Kirkland Residence explores industrial materials and finishes that highlight a builder's craft and illustrates the way a house is made. The 2100 square foot house uses glass, ceiling height, and carefully screened space to feel larger than its small size. The house was completed in February of 1998.
The Kirkland Residence was selected as the June 1998 Seattle Times/AIA Home of the Month and has been featured by Pacific Northwest Magazine in February 1998 and by Fine Homebuilding Magazine in March 2000.
