What do you do if one day you see that the home you’re living in, no longer suits your family’s needs? Most people would probably sell and buy something bigger. But not if you’re architect and if it’s the 810 SF, single-story house in Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood. Previously a single-story environment, Ghillino has decided to expand the space by adding another level to the house and creating two distinct areas defined by a cedar-clad wood wall. As for the connection between the interior and the exterior, it fades away by using slide-fold doors. Lots of painted cement fiber siding, tight knot cedar plank feature wall, plywood soffits, aluminum windows and a Zincalume sheet metal roofing, have lead to a real piece of art. We love it!
