This project’s two buildings nestle four 1800sf townhome units onto a sloped infill lot in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Its modern detailing and human-scaled massing complements the character of a rapidly-evolving urban neighborhood. The site’s natural topography allowed the design team to step the two structures, maximizing natural light and views and reducing the perceived height and bulk of the project. An exterior stair negotiates the slope and provides circulation and access to unit entryways and exterior common areas. The project’s units feature open floor plans with common rooms positioned to take advantage of eastward views. Generous windows combined with the architectural details of mullions, horizontal panelized metal siding, and metal railings provide contrast to the simplicity of the buildings’ massing. Rooftop decks provide access to sky, views, and outdoor living space to each unit.
