Challenging Conventions of Northwest Modernism
This partial tear down and reconstruction of a mid-century modern residence challenges the conventions of Northwest modernism resulting in a more expressive domestic environment and greater utilization of site opportunities. The “bones” of the original mid-century modern building were preserved to reduce construction cost and environmental waste. Overhangs were minimized to allow the free flow of light and view. Wood beams and other stylistic elements were dropped in favor of taught finishes and clean surfaces. Geometric forms were added to enliven interior spaces and create formal unity.
