Located in Seattle, Wash., Broadmoor Residence was recently upgraded and extended by the creative team at David Coleman Architecture. Opening toward an inner garden, the L-shaped mid-century home was brought back to life by an extensive transformation.
“The original house, designed in 1956 by a prominent Seattle architect, was conceived as a meandering, one-story structure on a pastoral half-acre site,” the project developers said. “The original plan was rather ambiguous, and a 1970s remodel further eroded the integrity of the plan.”
“Our goal was to clarify the plan, improve livability and merge interior and exterior space where possible,” they said. This was accomplished in a number of ways, including adding window walls to let in natural lighting and make a seamless connection with the backyard.
