Seattle Times Feature
In a neighborhood of West Seattle where the context includes a steel mill and a salmon stream, a tiny ramshackle house was incorporated into the design of a new house which is more than double in size. It was necessary for the family to live in the "cottage" while the adjacent structure dubbed the "treehouse" was built. The existing house then became the public spaces and the new structure the private. Along with a separate Studio building the residence has the feel of a family compound overlooking the creek.
