....Acting as Architect, Developer, and Construction Manager to empower our decisions from project inception to completion.....

To break down the massing of the two buildings and to address the small scale of the adjacent neighborhood, the two structures were sited to allow southern solar access and view corridors to all four units.

We chose to respect the small single-family homes neighboring the property by creating a detached single family home at the rear alley. This house has similar characteristics including a horizontal paulownia open-joint rain-screen enclosure assembly which mimics the lap-siding of the existing homes in the neighborhood. The three units facing the street reach out to pedestrians akin to the rowhome developments that were once prevalent in larger cities. The front stoops reach to the ground inviting neighbor interaction; while the penthouse stair towers reach to the sky, engaging the Seattle skyline in the near distance.
