In a relatively dense built-up district of Seattle, a detached
house was to be built that would offer its inhabitants
the maximum possible space and freedom – in spite of
its proximity to neighboring buildings. The architects
achieved just that with juxtaposed structures. Protected
outside areas were created both above and below the offset
levels, offering plenty of space for the family‘s leisure
activities. The transparent entrance and hall area is particularly

The kitchen as the center of the home – that was something the whole family wanted. So there is no living space in the traditional sense in the Madrona house, simply casually positioned seating in a range of niches. The open-plan kitchen is at the top of the stairs on the first floor and opens up to the outside with floor-to-ceiling windows. The
limitation to the bare essentials in terms of furniture and fixtures is characteristic of the interior – the kitchen area looks correspondingly spacious with units right down to the floor, one streamlined unit run and a dining table.
