SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL

GREENLAKE CONTEMPORARY CRAFTSMAN

This three-story single-family home is nestled near Greenlake in Seattle and was built from the ground up to accommodate a growing family while featuring a stylish contemporary design. Originally, the project was designed as a remodel, but during the initial demolition phase, it was determined that the existing home wasn’t worth saving and instead was torn down. This also allowed the house to be relocated on the lot, accommodating ample space for the home, a yard for the children to play, and a separate living unit for family or friends to stay in the basement.

The main floor features a modern, open-plan concept connecting the primary living areas into a continuous great room while creating distinct spaces. Each area references common details and materials for a sense of continuity with a unique spin. The craftsman-style ceiling coffers and trim help to delineate these areas while maintaining the holistic flow throughout the entire space as you walk through.

Walking into this home, you are greeted with bold black walls and ceiling within the main entrance, which continues into the adjacent den. This helps to create a feeling that this area is a separate, more intimate space within the open floor concept. The staircase railing is also highlighted in black as a focal point when you enter the home.

Making our way towards the kitchen, the cabinets are painted with a neutral blue that ties in with the tones from the fireplace surround tile. Brass cabinet hardware and lighting provide a distinctive contrast and a bit of luxury. The expansive island is the jewel of the open floor plan and the true heart of the home. The waterfall quartz countertops, sleek cooktop, and flush-mounted range hood help amplify the polished feel.

As you walk across the open floor plan, the dining room is lit with windows on all sides, creating an illuminated glow. Along the far side of the dining and living room, an array of glass folding doors connects the living area to the large, covered deck facing the rear yard, allowing for a seamless connection between the interior and outdoors both visually and spatially.

On the second floor, the primary bedroom and the children’s rooms showcase expansive windows with brightly lit spaces. The primary bedroom is large and fully illuminated with skylights and a vaulted ceiling above, allowing the jewel-toned blue walls and gold light fixture to shine.

Walking downstairs, you are given a direction at the landing – to continue downstairs to the accessory dwelling unit, or a glass door can guide you outside to the lush side yard. The walk-out basement contains a full kitchen, an additional bedroom, a bathroom, and a recreational space.
