Completed in 2008 by Prentiss Balance Wickline Architects, Magnolia Remodel is a renovation project of an existing low-slung ranch-style house. This house is located in Seattle, on the southeast slope of the Magnolia neighborhood with 1864 SF in size. The renovation is done without changing the footprint and the interior spaces of the house are also modified too.
This existing low-slung ranch-style house is renovated thoroughly by the architect without changing its footprint. The house’s main form is also kept but modified, especially to enhance the interior spaces of the house. This renovation can transform the house into a comfortable and modern house.
Previously, the low ceilings offered an oppressive feeling. The best solution for these ceilings is creating cathedral-type ceilings that achieved by curring into the house attic. Boxes of powder-coated blue steel expand the bathrooms and kitchen, giving the house exterior a perfect harmony to the very random window pattern previously. Another steel box is used to replace the original curved window to get more space, stunning views, and also natural light.
