Program: Create an open floor plan home with exposed wood and lots of natural light while maintaining some privacy from the neighbors.
Design: We designed this Thai-Asian style house around the kitchen, which is the heart of the house for these Owners. Kitchen, dining, living, powder room, and walk-in pantry are located on the main floor with bedrooms on the 2nd floor. Each bedroom has a custom made ship’s ladder to individual lofts. This Phinney Ridge house has wonderful views to the west. The living room has a glass roll-up garage door that opens to a large wrap around view deck.
The main floor structural beams allow for tall ceilings and the 2nd floor has exposed wood collar-ties so that each bedroom can be vaulted.
