West Seattle Addition
West Seattle WA
A modern addition to a brick ranch house that included renovation of the existing house as well resulted in 3500 square feet of living space on a view lot overlooking the Fauntleroy Ferry. The single pitch roof with expressed structure and the simple form of the addition clad in brightly colored wood and metal siding contrast with the simple rectangular plainness of the original roman brick house.
Housing a photography studio on the lower floor and a new master suite on the upper the addition is connected to the old by a new hall/library as well. Simple volumes delineated by geometric elements clad in red mahogany panels or blocks of strong color define the interior spaces and form view portals into and out of the house.
