This gracious 1910 Colonial Revival house enjoyed beautiful public rooms and an amazing location on Capitol Hill, but had poorly organized kitchen and bathroom spaces. It also had no way to take advantage of unencumbered western views toward Lake Union. Working with Ryan Rhodes Designs, the homeowners embarked on a gut renovation that left the best architectural detailing in place, but significantly reworked the circulation of the house, as well as added a new kitchen, new bathrooms, and a floor-through third story addition with a large roof deck.
Working directly with the homeowners, OreStudios selected all of the finishes and fixtures for the resulting remodel. Desiring a glamorous, colorful aesthetic, we built a complex palette of warm gray, aqua, pale blue, blush and olive that appears throughout the project. While materials and detailing are decidedly of the period of the house, the plumbing and lighting feels more current. When selecting furnishings, we went more modern still, injecting the clients' personalities into each room. As one ascends the central stair, each floor reveals decoration that becomes increasingly contemporary.
