How long does it take to build a house? How long does it take to build a home? Well, windows and walls are something to consider when building a shelter. But, my client had an opportunity to live for a time in the previous structure that once occupied this lot. Her architect instructed her to observe the ways in which life moved around her. So, she watched the way the light came in, the way it splayed itself, and the way it dragged shadows across the walls. She listened to the trees conducting the birds in their bird songs. She felt for the direction of each breeze. The passing of time, now intimately connected to the concept of space inside this home. Clerestory windows in the public space now lift the eyes up in veneration of treetops and blue skies above. Rows of over-sized windows and glass sliding doors pull in views of Mt. Olympus from one side, and downtown cityscapes from the other. Like a collection of boxes, the home is organized into well-delineated spaces. The master bedroom placed on the upper floor offers a layer of privacy from the public spaces and additional bedrooms down below. This home has been perfectly designed to take advantage of a well-curated life.
