Mid Century Modern Addition / Remodel

This remodel and addition to a classic Tucker & Shield Mid Century Modern home in the Laurelhurst neighborhood of Seattle, strengthens the connection of rooms to one another, the public portions of the house to the site, and updates the finishes of this 1955 residence while staying true to the spirit of the original design.

A new day lit stair well creates a logical circulation path between the bedroom wing of the split-level, and the public spaces of the house, creating a more fluid transition to the second floor living.  The new family room addition builds off the home’s original elemental language of brick, wood and glass, providing a deck to take in the expansive views of Lake Washington - Leveraging the house's connection to a quintessential Seattle site.

A special thanks to the project manager Rich Denny of High Country Contractors for being a great partner on this project!
