A Perch Above the Sound

West Seattle Residence


 This residence located in West Seattle is situated on a quiet road overlooking the dramatic expanse of the Puget Sound. We attempted to create a contrast between the outward focus to this dramatic view and an inwardly focused courtyard that becomes a private and centering aspect to the house. To take advantage of the sloped site there is a gentle stepping of volumes with a multilevel main house and a rear pavillion housing exercise room and spa separated by a private courtyard.
