West Seattle Junction House
Dalen Bakstad of Bakstad Construction approached us to design a new contemporary house in Seattle’s lively West Seattle Junction neighborhood.
We took an existing set of plans they had put together and reorganized them into a simple linear home.
We then carved away two volumes from the west-facing front of the house. One of these served as a covered entry, and the other as a large volume adding sculptural depth to the facade.
We then treated these two carved away areas as softer spaces in between inside and outside. As such, they will have a more precious siding such as red wood, which will be sheltered from the weather, and provide a contrast with the ‘hard’ dary gray shell.
