Contemporary West Capitol Hill Residence by Stuart Silk Architect
This Contemporary 1950’s West Capitol Hill Residence architectural renovation project is the great challenge for the Stuart Silk Architects, The challenge in adding a second story while preserving a sunroom, glass-walled den, and garage at either end of the house.
They begin to give their best solution for this West Capitol Hill Residence by giving a new two-story entrance atrium, which floods the house with light and takes advantage of views of the city, Lake Union, Puget Sound, and the Olympic Mountains. Clerestory windows open the living room and master bedroom suites to the expansive views. And wing-shaped metallic roofs make it seem the home is soaring above the surrounding trees.
