In a relatively densely built-up district of Seattle, a detached house was to be built that would offer its inhabitants the maximum possible space and freedom in spite of its proximity to neighboring buildings. The architects achieved just that with juxtaposed structures. Protected outside areas were created both above and below the offset levels, offering plenty of space for the family‘s leisure activities. The transparent entrance and hall area is particularly inviting.

The kitchen as the center of the home – that was something the whole family wanted. So there is no living space in the traditional sense in the house, causally positioned seating in a range of niches. The open plan kitchen is at the top of the stairs on the first floor and opens up to the outside with floor-to-ceiling windows. The limitation to the bare essentials in terms of furniture and fixtures is characteristic of the interior – the kitchen area looks correspondingly spacious with units right down to the floor, one streamlined unit run, and a dining table.
