Magnolia Remodel in Seattle, Washington by SHED Architecture & Design

Friday, July 17th, 2015

Article source: SHED Architecture & Design

The owners saw potential in this 1914 craftsman home when they bought it in 2013. The Seattle family had the intention of restoring the home’s original details while also making modern modifications to the traditional layout on the main floor. Influenced by years of living in Japan, the clients wanted a clean and simple aesthetic to suit their minimal lifestyle. The central challenge for SHED Architecture & Design was to rework the floor plan to improve the primary flow of the space. The firm made modifications to the main floor to create a feeling of continuity from the entryway to the backyard while remaining sympathetic to the structure’s native form. The Seattlebased architecture firm manipulated and built upon existing geometry to subtly introduce a new kitchen, bath, laundry and outdoor space that compliment the home’s original bay windows, angled walls and oak floors.

Lark Residence in Seattle, Washington by Stephenson Design Collective

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

Article source: Stephenson Design Collective

A small home in the residential neighborhood of Ballard in Seattle, WA was carefully dismantled by hand to save and salvage every piece of available material in order to create the Lark House. The existing home contained a full height basement that was inspected and reused as the foundation of the new home in order to take advantage of existing conditions and reuse the available earthwork and concrete already in place. The small footprint allowed for less of a typical living space so the design incorporated a covered patio off of the living room. Separated only by a folding window wall, this doubled the interior space when opened.  Keeping the smaller existing footprint also allowed for more yard play space for the kids and garden space for the entire family. Floating above the concrete patio is the aluminum-clad form containing the main bedroom and bath. Skylights brighten the bathroom with natural light, while providing privacy from the neighboring homes. Connecting the living level with the bedrooms above is an open stairwell surrounded by glass. To avoid excessive sun exposure, the windows are clad with a cedar wall screen that allows filtered light and view in and out of the home.  Concrete floors and durable materials are used throughout for the active family to enjoy their time together rather than working to constantly maintain the building. The rooftop deck replaces the displaced footprint of the home while garden planters utilize the rainwater.
