Contemporary Family House Azaya, Seattle
Seattle-based design studio Pb Elemental Architecture has completed the Azaya House project. Completed in 2012, this contemporary home can be found near the shores of Lake Washington in Seattle, Washington, USA.
According to the architects: “The foundation of an existing home on the property was retrofit to suit the new design and structure.
“The contemporary Washington house was designed for a young family with two kids in the Leschi neighbourhood of Seattle. After searching for months the couple found a vacant dilapidated property on a cute corner lot with easterly views of Lake Washington and Mercer Island.
“The contemporary Seattle property was perfect due to the condition of the existing foundation. Our design was able to incorporate it into the building creating a unique layout, fitting a modern home on a old chassis. The two level home features three bedrooms on the lower level, with the living (great room), kitchen and media room on the second floor.
“The living level is flanked with a South facing lot capturing light and views. An exterior staircase was designed to add access to the rooftop deck which was sited privately to provide a place of refuge and relaxation. The home is connected with a steel open riser stair pulling light into the spine of the building.”
