The Rauch Residence by BAAN Design

August 10, 2010

BAAN Design completed a contemporary addition and remodel of this home in Seattle, Washington.

Description from BAAN Design:

The scope for this project includes the reconstruction and remodel of the existing home and a first floor addition of a kitchen, family room and deck area above a new daylight basement with a master bedroom suite.  The original brick rambler was built in the 1950’s with territorial views of the neighborhood and Puget Sound beyond.  The owners have three young boys and their wish was to add additional family, living and sleeping areas, create better access to the rear yard from both upper and lower floors, maximize territorial views and at the same time bring light into the existing portion of the house.

The owners have a passion for the mid-century modern aesthetic in addition to an appreciation of industrial materials.  The addition was constructed primarily of glass (aluminum storefront glazing system), exposed concrete, and galvanized steel; with exception to the roof, which is an extension of the existing wood framed hip roof system often found in 1950 ramblers.
