Harvard Belmont Residence, Seattle, Washington

Harvard Belmont Residence, Seattle, Washington

An under construction street view of a substantial remodel and addition to a Seattle Foursquare style residence. The design of the 7,300 SF home features a welcoming interior and connection to the outdoors. Previous 'remuddles' created a maze like interior and destroyed many of the exterior details of the classic Foursquare design. The substantial remodel offered an opportunity to incorporate structural upgrades which allowed for a graceful flowing interior. The visual impact of the addition was minimized by locating the addition toward the back of the main historic body of the house and expanding the daylight basement below grade. An intensive green roof / roof garden caps the single story flat roof of the North wing and becomes a beautiful view for the second story bedrooms - providing greater thermal performance, improving air quality and biodiversity, manages rainwater, and reduces noise. The landscape was likewise considered in terms of sustainability using many hardy plantings which provide privacy, year round interest, and habitat for birds.

Outdoor patio (under construction). The mortar washed brick and 'intensive' type of green roofs on the North wing and detached garage provide a graceful contrast to the bevel siding of the main house and its hipped roof. The variety of plantings and (future) small trees on the green roofs will create year round visual interest and habitat for the birds.

A covered Ping Pong room (an under construction photo) blurs the line between indoors and outdoors. A series of sliding glass doors along the west wall shield the room from the noise of the highway and landing seaplanes in the distance while the east side is open to the patio. The wood siding was reclaimed from the salvaged street trees. The heavy timber beams were reclaimed from a nearby wharehouse. The beams provide structural support for the thicker and heavier type of green roof / roof garden above.

The steep slope along the West side property required major structural stabilization. The hillside was stabilized using numerous tiebacks and shotcrete walls. Invasive weeds and hazardous trees were removed & replaced with native and semi native trees and plantings. A small vegetable garden with fruit trellis will be installed on the upper terrace. At the completion of the project the backyard will include a circular stair and art work.

Caretaker Residence with Accessory Dwelling Unit, Seattle, Washington

Caretaker Residence with Accessory Dwelling Unit, Seattle, Washington

The 1890's house is one of the oldest in Seattle and a character defining home for this historic neighborhood. The house was severely dilapidated with most of the wood windows missing or rotten, major roof leaks, the siding falling off the house, and a 5" slope to the first floor. This major renovation transformed the home into two units; a one bedroom  with den apartment and an entirely separate accessory dwelling unit (ADU). The design required approval from the City of Seattle Landmarks Preservation Board and the Neighborhood Landmarks Committee. (Landscape under construction.)
