The Washington Park Renovation presented the challenge of creating a major new addition to an existing, historically significant house designed in 1920 by the renowned Seattle architect, Arthur Loveless. In deference to the existing house, the addition was lowered so that the roof of the addition made a new brick terrace located just outside the existing dining room. Thus, a large outdoor space was added to the house. The addition itself, consisting of a spacious, light-filled family room with a vaulted ceiling, was connected to the main level with a generous new stair. The brickwork of the new exterior walls precisely matched the existing brick walls of the house. The brickwork was carried through to the inside walls of the new family room, complemented by custom Douglas Fir cabinetry and copper wall sconces. In general, the addition is seamless with the architecture of the original home. The new interior spaces are also respectful of the older home, but the generous windows and vaulted ceiling create a light-filled interior that adds a new dimension to the existing house.
