Mt Baker Residence

Best Practice Architecture as Architects

The owners of this house loved the location and views but wanted to make some notable updates and expand their less than perfect 80’s era home. The house which sits on a steep slope has a unique layout as you enter from a bridge at the upper living level and descend to the private sleeping areas and ultimately to the lowest garage floor below.  The scope of the project included a modest addition on the 2 uppermost floors including a 3rd bedroom/ home office on the mid-level and kitchen expansion on the upper level. In addition, there is a new exterior steel fabricated stairway leading to an expansive new roof deck. The new mid floor bedroom/ office provides a new more direct connection to their private garden, and the expanded upper level is now large enough to accommodate a huge dinner parties prepared in a home chef’s dream kitchen. The powder room has been relocated partially over the stair and under a large custom skylight which allows natural light to seep deep into the lower levels.
