Single Story Scheme

Arbor Heights Addition

construction document phase

This project seeks to enlarge a small Seattle home. The tiny kitchen and cramped eating area hardly acknowledged the incredible view of Mount Rainier to the southeast.

To better enable the owners to understand how the addition would impact their yard, two different schemes were explored: a single story option, and one that stacked the spaces in two stories.

The two level scheme was selected to maximize the view and minimize the impact on the landscape.

Double Story Scheme
