About Second Avenue Residence

This home, originally built in 1900 and located on the south facing slope of Queen Anne, enjoys sweeping views of the Seattle skyline, the Space Needle and Mount Rainier. In an effort to reorganize the home in a logical and efficient sequence, we created a dramatic two-story glass shrouded entry. This design capitalizes on the dramatic views and allows daylight to flood the home and brighten the mood even on the cloudiest of days. The new steel stair is memorable for its minimal detailing and floating effect. The open floor plan with its ten-foot tall ceilings has a loft-like feeling. The new kitchen is anchored by its twenty-four foot long white stone capped island. Bleached wood beams enrich and punctuate the otherwise minimal pallet on the main floor.
