This is the latest project of V + C Architects (Vandeventer + Carlander). This private residence floats on Lake Union in Seattle and offers great panoramic views of downtown Seattle southward, Gas Works Park to the north and Queen Anne Hill to the west. With no space to spare, the home has a compact waterprint and easily combines indoor and outdoor living. The customers required a home that was modern and would meet their needs for comfortable living and gracious entertaining. The result is a design that turns the traditional floor plan upside down with the personal rooms on the ground (or may be water floor is correct?) floor and public spaces on the roof. A spiral staircase leads up to the rooftop deck for even more glorious views.
We'll keep you posted!
