Traditional Urban Builders
The developer purchased the urban lot in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood with an existing single family home in disrepair. The intent is to build a new contemporary house that fits within the existing footprint, and also fits into the neighborhood vernacular.
The new design aims to push the boundaries using different shapes on the upper floors to maximize space and create a contemporary feel, while a classic gabled roof and box shape help the home blend with the surrounding architecture. A large slider and porch on the front facade establish a connection with the street and community without sacrificing privacy. The modern spin on a classic silhouette makes the home feel approachable despite the additional square footage.
