On The Street…Queen Anne, Seattle, WA

Queen Anne  Contemporary

Queen Anne Contemporary

Even though this house is an unusual style for Queen Anne, the materials, size and they way it sits on the site all help this house feel “right” with its neighbors. In fact, in chatting with the owners, they mentioned that one of their primary goals was to build a contemporary home which was appropriate for the neighborhood. A smart goal, well implemented here.

The piano accordion doors that open on to the main floor patio give a wonderful light indoor/outdoor feel to the first floor.

Note, according to the owners, the yew hedge is a special dwarf variety that will grow to a carefully selected size, just high enough to provide privacy without over growing the site.  Queen Anne, Seattle, WA, USA, Contemporary 2010
