This new home is located on the plateau above Seattle’s Eastside. The site is a small, open meadow, which allowed us to orient the house to maximize natural light throughout. We created a courtyard on the south side to establish an outdoor room, bringing the landscape into the home. The traditional interior includes formal living and dining rooms. Tall ceilings and classic detailing help achieve the sense of a well-established home. All these elements combine to create a warm, welcoming, family-oriented home.
