Built in 1949, this historic residence resides in the beautiful Town of Beaux Art Village near Bellevue, Washington. Passed down through the family, the home continues to be a gathering place for all generations of family and friends. While memories are warm in this home, the layout of the space was tight. The original floorplan expresses the more controlled, economical use of the footprint commonly found a with home of this era. The driving desire was to create an addition that complimented and enhanced function while still honoring the original. The team started by removing the walls between the kitchen and dining room. This gives proper traffic flow and amore spacious light-filled experience of the home. In the adjacent room you will find a particularly sentimental area that hosted many of the holiday gatherings. It was critical to the owners the room remain untouched and as is. The warm cozy wood paneling honors all the memories this space holds. The new wall of windows now overlooks the updated and inviting patio to make new memories.

Once the architectural details were finalized, supply chain issues forced the use of different roofing material than originally planned. The Beaux Arts Village community has specific regulations regarding their ecology that needs careful handling. Lastly, a concrete strike delayed the pouring of the foundation and new concrete patio.
