This project involves the addition and remodel of the existing Roman brick rambler built in the 1950s, offering territorial views of the neighborhood and Puget Sound beyond. The scope of work includes a two-story addition featuring a kitchen, family room, and deck area above, as well as a new daylight basement with a primary bedroom suite below. The owners, who have three young children, wished to add extra family, living, and sleeping areas, improve access to the rear yard from both upper and lower floors, maximize territorial views, and introduce more light into the existing portion of the house. The owners have a passion for mid-century modern homes and an appreciation for industrial materials. The addition was constructed primarily of glass, exposed concrete, and galvanized steel, apart from the new roof, which extends the existing wood-framed, hip roof system often found on 1950s ramblers.
