Crown Hill Residence – Seattle, WA
A new custom residence for a couple on an empty lot located in the Crown Hill neighborhood of Seattle, with views to the southwest and northwest of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. Immediately to the west of the site stands a 1970’s contemporary house, blocking part of the view and the western light. The challenge was to capture the remaining views and light while maximizing privacy and space. The solution: a box, filled with light generated by the need to lift the roof plane of the north and south walls to reach and capture the sense of spaciousness.
