Text description provided by the architects. The four unit project is a premier home placed in a small suburb of South Seattle called Beacon Hill. Surrounded by older one story brick homes, the bold multi-family building rises up 3 levels and is topped off with a generous cedar roof deck. Design begins on the entry floor, where residents are offered a sense of privacy stepping down a few stairs, behind a concrete wall to enter the homes.

Grass inserts line the 4-stall parking area to reduce water run-off.

The home is bathed in concrete flooring and bamboo hardwoods. Custom steel and concrete stairwell is an instant design focal point upon entry of each unit.

Design elements include seamless floor to ceiling windows and clerestory windows, a design scheme that is carried through out each level of the home. The exterior facades reflect each other, making the 4 units one cohesive building.

The kitchen level is made even larger with extended dark cabinetry, that is floor to ceiling as well, marrying the living and dining areas.

A progressive master bath is left without a door and includes a double vanity sink, a walk in closet located inside, and no bathtub - but a deluxe shower with dual and above shower heads.
