Innis Arden View House

H2D Architecture + Design has been working closely with an Innis Arden family on a major whole house remodel and addition project.  They recently purchased the home after it being a rental for many years.  The home has great potential – fabulous large site, sweeping views of the Puget Sound, and good original construction to build from.  The design goals are to add a master suite with a deck overlooking the Puget Sound, new kitchen, powder room, additional bathroom, and reconfigure the existing spaces on the lower floor.  This active family spends much of their time outdoors, so creating a connection to the outdoors is critical in this project.

Northgate Kitchen Remodel

H2D Architecture + Design has recently completed a kitchen remodel in the Northgate neighborhood of Seattle.  The couple purchased the home several years ago with the goal of remodeling the awkward existing kitchen (see the before photo below!).  The design goals were to open the space to create a more functional kitchen, bring in more natural light, and provide a space for the couple to enjoy cooking and entertaining.

Seattle Green Custom Home

Construction has begun on the Seattle Green Custom Home!  Follow the progress as we go from deconstruction to a beautiful new home.  We will be posting with the most recent at the top of this post…so be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the before photo!  Learn more about the design process…

Concrete

  • Portions of the existing foundation are being reused for the new home.

Deconstruction

  • Salvage companies came first to strip the house of useable building materials:  windows, fixtures, furnace, and flooring.
  • Friends also salvaged some items to use in other projects: flooring, drawers, and paneling
  • Items were salvaged for reuse in the new house:  appliances, fixtures, stone, and some cable.
  • The remainder of the house was demolished and recycled at a commingled recycling center with a recycling rate of 85%.
