Leschi Residence

Location Seattle, Washington
Design Principal Tom Kundig

The clients wanted a house to serve as a base-of-action for their travels and other pursuits. The design involved completely reworking the interior of an existing 1,800-square-foot home and opening it up to the exterior through decks and window walls while keeping the essential box-like quality of the house intact. The house is simple and direct, eschewing doors and walls for a relatively open plan; and uses straightforward materials like raw steel, elm flooring and ash cabinetry. A raw-steel staircase and catwalk connect the levels and rooms of the house.

Connecting the levels and rooms of the house is a raw-steel staircase and catwalk. The steel, intentionally tough looking serves as a counterpoint to the otherwise typical construction techniques. An ash-veneered column reaches from the first floor to the third and doubles as cabinetry.
