This 1909 Arts and Crafts home in Seattle’s Ravenna neighborhood has been carefully renewed. The house was remodeled in the 1940s or 1950s, and later was used as rental property. When the owners purchased it, the house was in very poor condition and little of the original character remained. The owners’ objective was to restore the Arts and Crafts character while expanding and renovating the home. The home now provides a range of different spaces for family activities and meets contemporary living requirements.
The home features new woodwork alongside salvaged materials and fixtures. The design also focuses on energy efficiency, environmentally-friendly construction, and compatibility with the Ravenna bungalow neighborhood.
The project was completed over a ten-year period in two major phases. In the first phase, we renovated the second floor and added a third floor. In the second phase we renovated the main floor, added a detached garage/shop, and finished the basement. New landscaping was created after construction was completed.
