Kirkland's East of Market neighborhood is the most urban of Seattle's eastside communities, and this design represents very urban thinking.

Living spaces aretightly organized and vertical, stacked over the garage, with a shifting geometry between floors creating a more dynamic form and living spaces. That shifting language continues with the built-in cabinetry in the kitchen and at the large central stair and wall. The stair wall, along with a simple singular accent color, ties the three stories together, creating a datum around which other programmatic elements align.

Materials are tough and weatherproof, with limited use of natural wood accents. A green roof sits atop a main floor bedroom drawing the landscape up into the stacked forms of the architecture.
