Our recent clients, a couple working in Seattle tech, purchased this 1909 home for its spacious interior and grand features. The home, located between Capitol Hill and Eastlake in Seattle, is one of many box-style homes in the neighborhood having features such as: a dormer, covered porch and square columns. Though the home had been renovated before, the interior had more Victorian details than modern ones. With the help of local architect Board & Vellum, designer Jules Thomas of Maker Agent and our build team, the couple reimagined some of the major spaces and made quick updates to modernize others. The result is a truly stunning modern home that retains its historical grandeur. Note: The interior design of the home is currently still in progress, and we look forward to sharing updates upon its completion.
