Showcasing shingled walls that wrap over to become the roof, this Queen Anne Mid-Modern home is a dream come true. Imagined by Seattle-based architect Paul Hayden Kirk of studio Coop15, this amazing residence became a reality when the owners decided a modern upgrade. The house was transformed from an old boring construction into a fascinating blend of modern elements and materials.
Located in Seattle, Washington, this luxurious property opens up to the surrounding landscape, stretching over city lights in the living room. Another glazed opening focuses on foliage views, encouraging inhabitants to notice the changing of seasons. Renovations and extensions led to a bold architectural expression, reinforced on the inside with cedar clad walls and ceilings.
Architects explain their client’s influence on the architectural decisions:
“When owners Gavin & Jenny Kelly asked us to renovate and expand the house in 2008, they had two young children living in an 1870 square foot, two-bedroom house, with very limited space for family activities. We extruded the plan and form, stretching the house to the west about ten feet, making room for another bedroom on the lower level, with a separate bath for kids. The enlarged lower level also accommodated a media room and a spacious home office. Upstairs, the entry, and combined living/dining/kitchen area, were all expanded. The master bedroom and bath were reconfigured to create a little extra elbow room for 6’-7” Gavin, and the stair was completely changed to increase headroom.”
