After seven years in Capitol Hill, we've moved down to Columbia City! We're so excited about this change and can't wait to make this new space our own.
SPRING CONSTRUCTION SEASON
We have so many projects under construction! It’s been fun to see the progress happen as our work becomes real with the support of a team of engineers, builders, interior designers, and others. Can’t wait to show you the final projects.
We’re helping these homeowners bring their 1960s home up to date while improving views of Lake Washington.
Beach Drive House
This home has a stunning and unobstructed view of the Puget Sound. It was substantially redesigned and rebuilt in 1988, over a smaller 50’s house. Now it’s time for a modern update!
Mount Baker House
This home was designed in 1989 by Milton Stricker, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. It
is rigorous in its design concept and overall detailing. But many spaces and finishes are in need of an update. We are planning improvements to the floor plan (for better accessibility), and to all finishes and cabinetry, all while honoring the building’s ‘good bones’ and core design principles.
This barn will provide the owners an amazing accessory ‘lounge’ space perfect for displaying art, playing records, sipping wine, and enjoying the view of West Sound. We are getting ready to submit for a permit!
A HARDSCAPE GROWING IN
We recently visited a project we finished last year for two families on Capitol Hill where, instead of dividing up their narrow side yards, they decided to skip the fencing and share the area freely. We designed the open space (with hardscaping, retaining walls and areas for landscaping) that was more than the sum of the two parts; we’re happy to see this green garden getting good use!
WE'RE HITTING THE ROAD!
Excited to be able to join the AIA San Francisco, Center for Architecture + Design and AIA SF's Housing Committee as a speaker for their annual two-day virtual symposium called “Housing+ Future Typologies for a Livable + Equitable San Francisco.” We are joined by our friends at Frolic to discuss ways to ensure housing security for communities most at risk of displacement.June 16 + 17 | 9-11AM (PST)
