The house is called Madrona House, named after a Seattle neighborhood located on the beach of Lake Washington. The house has a total area of 2,400 sq. ft. and has a cool and modern architecture style; an ideal place to live for a dynamic, creative, and young family. Made from metal, glass, and concrete, this modern house is a tribute to clean surfaces and cool forms.
In a big city where sunlight is considered as a valuable commodity - just like space is considered valuable to New Yorkers – architecture firm Stephenson Design Collective did the right action. They designed this house to have as many light sources and windows as possible in order to keep out the darkness as well as to keep in the valuable Vitamin D. As this modern house is located in Seattle, this is an appropriate thing to do.
The entrance hall is formed of ceiling-to-floor windows decorated with an astounding staircase made of natural wood with glass fences. The kitchen decorated by horizontal windows instead of a panel of backsplash. The design of the kitchen area is to utilize skylights for maximizing natural light that come over the dining table.
A screen was put to separate the bedroom from the bathroom in order to establish privacy while at the same time the screen allows natural light traveling between the rooms. More natural light come to the master bedroom via a window placed in the shower.
Several alternatives of storage were assembled into the house, like the shelving located above the house’s stairs, the integrated cabinets, as well as the bookshelf adjacent to the large kitchen island. The storage alternatives allow the house to have less furniture, therefore, less clutter.
Another plus of this modern Seattle house is the concrete floors that are durable as well as can be cleaned easily, suitable for a family that has young children.
