    JURY COMMENTS

    Rethinks the American single
    family house and creates new
    landscape in which it may exist.

    This project explores
    possibilities for obtaining a
    “home with a view” in
    unexpected places, and
    provides hope that someone
    else might be able to create this
    kind of home in his or her
    ”backyard.”

    It demonstrates that small is
    beautiful.

Notes of Interest

This single-family residential home and caretaker’s unit is situated in the unique location of a warehouse roof in Stimson Marina (Ballard Neighborhood) of Seattle.

This project focuses on the employment of warehouse roofs in its style and construction. Millions of square feet of warehouse roofs exist in our cities, and most are occupied only by pigeons and mechanical units. In Seattle, many warehouses are near the waterways and have territorial views of the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

This project is one example of what is possible if we look at these forgotten landscapes as new opportunities and rediscover them in an industrialized urban setting. It follows a simple central idea: a small box on a big box… it could be located anywhere.
