The project of four units, each unit of 162.5 m, is a house located in a small suburb south of Seattle called Beacon Hill. Surrounded by a long history of single-storey houses in brick, the audacious multi-family construction soars to top 3 levels in a spacious terrace with a cedar deck. The design starts at the level of access where residents gain a sense of privacy down a few steps behind a concrete wall to access housing.
The houses are wrapped in glazed concrete floors and bamboo wood. The concrete and steel staircase is a focal point of design on which perch eyes to access each unit.
Design elements include floor to ceiling windows, which is repeated at each level. The work makes symmetrical facades of the 4 units in one building.
A social area in the dining room joins the kitchen commonplace these days, strengthens the relationship cook-eat-sharing.
