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.

Also, I would be intrigued to see how one puts a 35,500 square foot (3300 square meter) house on a lot that really only allows approx. 5,250 sf (488m^2)

Must be a bugger trying to watch TV without a shed load of blinds to block out the sun.

Worth noting pardo ain't an architect, and his projects are poor rehashes of old work. We can do better than this, Pacific Northwest.
