By reusing the existing foundation of an existing house, just north of downtown Kirkland, this project minimizes earthwork and saves the entire concrete footprint of the previous structure. An added 2nd level adds all the functions necessary of a 21st century residence while providing separation between common and privates uses. The interior uses a symmetrical layout to optimize natural light and capture territorial views. The exterior focuses on simplicity and establishes a clear logic of function, form and material.
