Bellevue Residence

Strict covenants regarding lot coverage and building height are intended to uphold the simple, gracious character of this 1950s-era, city neighborhood just a stone’s throw from downtown Bellevue. The low-pitched, gabled roof forms that grew out of these requirements were a major determinant in the spirit of the design for this empty-nester residence.

The result is a timeless new home that respectfully reimagines the mid-century, subdivision archetype for 21st century living, Pacific Northwest style. Simple roof forms, broad roof overhangs and a studied use of glass combined with a consistent and disciplined materials palette achieves a harmonious flow of living spaces both inside and out.
