Vertical Patio in Seattle, Washington by PIQUE llc

Saturday, April 14th, 2012

Article source: PIQUE llc

This back yard patio situated on a small urban lot in Seattle provided an opportunity to explore how a very simple and contained architecture can animate a space and continually surprise and engage its owners.

The challenge was the client’s interest in adding a large amount of program (grill patio, hot tub, changing room, dining table, bar, stool, reading area, and security gates) while maintaining as much open area as possible.  The solution began with a calculation of the allowable building area in the back yard which was then transferred directly into two vertical planes.  Through a series of hinges and pivots, the individual bits of program are housed in these two vertical walls. Sun/shadow studies derived where the specific locations for the various programs would be within the composition of the wall.
