house was designed for a site on Gator St. on Queen Anne Hill. The objective
of this second year project was to create a two-story home. The home sits
atop Queen Anne Hill with views of the Puget Sound, the Space Needle, and
the Seattle skyline. With a basic foot-print for the house given, the project
asked for three bedrooms (two bedrooms with an adjoining bath and one master),
two baths, a kitchen, and stairs between the two floors.
In designing the home I tried to create a house that would fit in with the surrounding older, Queen Anne style homes. I also wanted to bring the great views around the house into the home. To accomplish this, I placed large windows in the family room and dining room, as well as the two bedrooms, and hallway that look out over the city. This house was designed for a family of four, with two teenage kids.
