Project Description

Space Needle View - Sheri Olson Architecture

Space Needle View

On the south slope of Queen Anne, this site has a panoramic view of Elliott Bay, downtown Seattle and the Space Needle, but they were not visible from the existing 1960’s house. A third floor was added with space for a living room, kitchen and a pool table and over-sized glass doors open onto a cantilevered deck. The second floor features a master suite, library and poker playing area. The completely renovated 2,800 SF house includes a residential-sized elevator to ease getting groceries up to the third floor kitchen and plan ahead for aging-in-place. To address the client’s chemical sensitivities, only low-emitting paints, adhesives and composite materials were selected.
