International award winning interior design firm Garrett Cord Werner LLC designed this modern concrete and steel home originally built in the 1930s in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. The site is located on a hilltop that overlooks the city of Seattle. When confronted with the redesign, the owners insisted on keeping the shell of the home as opposed to creating a new ground-up construction.
The resulting redesign and updating of the interior is a tranquil free-flowing home with elements of nature and vast views of the Seattle skyline. Many smaller rooms were expanded or opened up into a larger open layout plan to allow for increased outside views and maximization of sunlight.
The contemporary interior design includes a minimalist palate of natural materials and colors. The minimal aesthetics definitely contribute to the serene feeling of the home.
This view of the open plan kitchen shows concrete counter tops and a large, beautiful walnut dining table. The kitchen also features several framed photographs and prints, which are plentifully distributed throughout the home’s interior.
A striking steel staircase comprised of two narrow stairs lead to an intriguing piece of artwork on the second level.
This amazingly serene bathroom features a shower and sunken bathtub that is aligned next to a large window that can be opened up. Directly outside the tub window is an adjacent sunken pond in an outdoor courtyard. The pond and courtyard mirror the tub and peaceful bathroom décor.
