This Seattle couple is accustomed to hillside living and wanted to take advantage of the amazing views to the east. To achieve full access of the views, we designed a split level home with large door openings onto decks that were paramount for outdoor living space, due to the steep lot.

With a myriad of technically difficult constraints – steep slopes, soil conditions, solar ordinance, and tight site parameters – this was one of our most challenging projects. Off street parking was required, which necessitated accommodating the house and garage together in the same footprint on this tight hillside lot.
