Ravenna House

Type: New construction
Location: Ravenna, Seattle
Size: 2165 sf
Status: In design

Designed to address specific site constraints, the Ravenna House optimizes an existing empty parcel in a growing neighborhood of Seattle. The split level design capitalizes on the slope from the sidewalk and provides clear transitions within the house from social to private spaces. Because of the height of the surrounding houses and irregular grade, the top of each volume is stepped to maximize ceiling height. Given the current homes on either side, special care was taken to preserve privacy through window and room placement.
