Adams Mohler Ghillino designed this home in Seattle, Washington.
From the architects:
The house is anchored to its sloping site at the upper northwest corner by a cast-in-place concrete garage. A semi-detached, single story studio sets atop the garage and cantilevers to create a covered path to the entry. The three story volume of the main house occupies the lower southeast corner of the site with an open living/dining/kitchen space on the main floor, master bedroom suite and study on the upper floor, and children’s bedrooms and play area on the lower floor.
The three-story height of the southeast corner is carved away and replaced with a deck at the main level. This deck is suspended from a three- story steel bracket that also supports the roof above. Living spaces at both the main and upper levels are opened to the resulting two-story space by sets of sliding glass doors.
