This quaint brick house situated in the Seattle neighborhood of Laurelhurst was running out of room for its growing family. The small kitchen was cut off from the other spaces, the TV/homework room was cramped and overused, the living room sat un-used, and all spaces lacked daylight. The approach was to open up the entire first floor and insert a modern kitchen into the Tudor house. The history and style of the house were not forgotten. A series of traditional windows were inserted in the back wall letting light and the garden view penetrate the entire first floor.
