PB_ELE_Cloverdale_01Located in South Park Seattle Washington, this project by Seattle based Pb Elemental Architecture was completed in May 2008. It includes 3 units total approximating 900 sq ft each.

The long, thin site of 3720 sq ft consists of 3 homes – one singular home and one duplex in the rear of the site. With an emphasis on height, the homes are unique in design and space planning. 

While the duplex homes have identical floor plans, the separate home (pictured here)is a tri-level home that differ in space and planning.

The entry level introduces the u-shape kitchen and living/dining area, made larger by a vertical lift window and high ceiling above. The second level, the loft level is made larger by 3 skylights and an extra large master bath. From the loft level, the steel and concrete stair leads to a 95 sq ft cedar deck.

The deck offers a private urban oasis overlooking the small community of South Park in Seattle. 

The exterior finishes include exterior grade cedar paneling, white and gray aluminum panels, and cedar. An rain screen application of these materials encourage heat and cooling conservation inside the home.

Seen in the streamlined interior architecture, the home accommodates a progressive lifestyle, designed space for only the necessary, the home leaves no room or place for unnecessary material things.

The primary materials used are clean and honest: concrete, steel, glass, and bamboo hardwood, designed to flush with existing planes of counters, cabinetry, and walls.
