To design this new house on a corner lot in West Seattle we started with the concept of a large, covered, south-facing porch connecting the inside and outside. We also created an open staircase that connected all four levels. The open staircase in the center of the house helped provide natural daylight throughout the home. A 15 ft. clear span La Cantina retractable door from the living room to the covered porch (or veranda) allows for easy flow and connects indoor and outdoor experience. The master bedroom suite is on the third floor, separate from the rest of the house. It is comprised of vaulted ceilings, a master bath, walk-in closet, and a roof deck that takes advantage of views to the west of Elliot Bay.
The homeowner can control the entire home by phone or Internet. The wireless system orchestrates lighting, heating, security, water temperature, and music. State of the art electronic capability maximizes efficiency and allows our clients to moderate all facets of the systems in their house.
