Midcentury Modernism at it Charming Best: Budget Makeover of West Seattle Residence

We have always talked about how every home is different in terms of its design needs and even when it comes to renovations and redesign, each house demands a different approach. In some cases, you have to undertake a complete gut renovation that alters almost the entire residence while in others a sensible and sensitive approach is required. The West Seattle Residence by Hoedemaker Pfeiffer falls into the latter category with clever minor tweaks and alterations giving it a whole new avatar. A Ralph Anderson house that was originally built in the 1960’s, the mid-century design of the residence is clearly visible with its extensive use of wood and glass.

Living room nestled on the edge of the cliff offers some of the most amazing views at the house

Much of the home is clad in brick, glass and wood and this has been completely unaltered even while extending the smaller wooden patios outside into relaxing decks that stretch into the canopy. Nestled on the edge of a cliff, the living area offers some spectacular views of the scenery outside. A grand entry with tall gray walls and a majestic skylight welcomes you indoor and you can see midcentury modern, eclectic, Asian and cabin style influences being effortlessly combined in every room of the house.
