As for Model Remodel, we have teamed up with CAST Architecture to bring you a Built Green 4 Star remarkable remodeling experience in Laurelhurst.This modest mid-century house had two very important things going for it: its convenient Laurelhurst location and the owner’s 10-year connection to the community. However this beloved home, built in 1947, had many outdated limitations requiring the family to consider a major remodel. This growing family had ambitious project objectives: adding living space yet maintain the home’s original footprint; improving functionality; capturing additional daylight; connecting the indoors and outdoors; enhancing the home’s comfort and overall air quality; and, reflecting the homeowners’ love of Japanese aesthetics and traditions.
