From the architect. The Aurea Residence is located in the Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle. Designed for a young family on a 5000 sqft infill lot, the home is oriented to maintain privacy, maximize views and daylighting. The massing consists of four forms that surround a Japanese rock garden, which creates a private center courtyard and floods the home with southern light.

A Bernice Abbott inspired black and white translucent photograph provides recognition and definition to the front entry door while providing privacy. The lower level consists of a master suite with separate bathroom volume and recessed tub, a mother in law unit and a two car garage. The second floor features two bedrooms, and the great room with an open roof deck and green roof off of the living room.
