From the architect. The project includes 1688 sf of living space, one car garage, driveway, and green space on a small lot centered in Seattle's Capitol Hill urban community.

Exterior elements distinguish the homes different areas; extra rooms and stairwell clad in black aluminum panel, while the main areas; common level and master suite, are outlined with white aluminum panel, cedar rain screen and glass. 

Extensive store-front windows facing the street add a voyeuristic element to the home, giving away intimate views of the master suite and living room floors.

Exposed cedar beams on the ceiling, scored concrete floors and steel-supported stair treads are visible through the window views. Clerestory windows located near the ceiling line allow light to continuously move through the home. Many are used in the bathrooms and hallways, lessening the usage of energy, allowing for more use of natural light.

agreed. the interiors are horrible. it looks like somebody spilled target on a college dorm room. I wonder if the people whose house is 5 feet behind this piece regret selling their yard to these trendoid developers.

for sale for a cool US$1,000,000 in one of seattle's trendier and denser neighborhoods, it's massing is interesting but the interior detailing and finishes don't look too hot.

what's up w/ the lack of window fittings anywhere? can we see some better handrail detailing please?

the landscaping may be the most successful part of this project.
