  • Kirsch Residence
  • Seattle, Washington
    Price per square foot: $173 (2012 dollars)

    The Kirsch residence involves the substantial remodel to a 1950’s home on Seattle’s Queen Anne Hill. Adding a full-height second story gave the owners (a family of four) generous living spaces, plenty of daylight and territorial views. A new envelope brings the home into the 21st century and includes energy efficient windows and doors. Custom details inside, like the open tread stairway bring sophistication to the interiors while the new roof deck captures views of the mountains. By keeping the existing foundation and first floor framing the project is cost effective and sensible.

    The interior stairway integrates with the adjacent custom cabinetry for a cohesive aesthetic. The lower closed treads make a walnut base that relates to the kitchen cabinets and living room bookcase.  The living room bookcase doubles as guardrail to the stairway down and allows the stair composition to be unobtrusive and clean. Attenuated steel rods extend from the ceiling down to catch the open treads of the stair. The solid maple treads relate with the maple floors at the upper level. The composition creates a functional stairway (that meets the building code) and also provides a pleasant backdrop to the living room. All images by BUILD LLC.

Seattle, Washington
Price per square foot: $173 (2012 dollars)

The Kirsch residence involves the substantial remodel to a 1950’s home on Seattle’s Queen Anne Hill. Adding a full-height second story gave the owners (a family of four) generous living spaces, plenty of daylight and territorial views. A new envelope brings the home into the 21st century and includes energy efficient windows and doors. Custom details inside, like the open tread stairway bring sophistication to the interiors while the new roof deck captures views of the mountains. By keeping the existing foundation and first floor framing the project is cost effective and sensible.

The interior stairway integrates with the adjacent custom cabinetry for a cohesive aesthetic. The lower closed treads make a walnut base that relates to the kitchen cabinets and living room bookcase.  The living room bookcase doubles as guardrail to the stairway down and allows the stair composition to be unobtrusive and clean. Attenuated steel rods extend from the ceiling down to catch the open treads of the stair. The solid maple treads relate with the maple floors at the upper level. The composition creates a functional stairway (that meets the building code) and also provides a pleasant backdrop to the living room. All images by BUILD LLC.
