Waterfront Compound

A classic mansion was originally designed for a large family with many servants. Built in 1913, it did not serve contemporary familis well, suffered from a low, dark entry and cavernous upper hallway. A new two story entry with upper gallery, new kitchen, sunroom, and family room were all created from existing spaces while maintaining the elegant home's original character.  - Seattle WA

During the design process for this home, it became apparent that the existing structure would best accommodate the new needs of the family if it were raised a full story, with new living spaces added below it.  The former living/dining/kitchen spaces became the new master suite.  A new main floor was constructed to replace the living room, dining room, kitchen, and family room. - Seattle WA
