Contemporary House Ideas by Lawrence ArchitectureDecember 31st, 2010 - Posted in House Ideas
The West Seattle Residence sited in West Seattle district of Seattle, created with 3,800 SF of living space and a 925 SF detached garage, built with concrete, steel, and glass as primary material. A concrete wall up to twenty-four feet high organizes the site and the house: the garage, entry and service spaces are on the street side of the wall, while providing privacy for the main living space which is a curtain wall-enclosed pavilion.
The wall is also the organizing element for the circulation including the stairs with cantilevered steel treads. Supported on steel frames and triangular steel trusses, the roof swoops over the concrete wall capping the pavilion. The master bedroom is in a loft space above the kitchen, while a family room, media room, children’s bedrooms and bathrooms occupy the daylight basement level.
