Mercer Island Residence

This island remodel reuses the foundation of the original building, but with a few deft moves becomes an entirely new home. Adding a steep pitched roof grants breathability from the additional space and higher ceilings. A family room and kitchen addition open the main floor into a free-flowing and connected space, with access to the terrace as well. A canopy over the patio creates a cozy setting for use in rainy weather, and blends the indoor and outdoor aspects of the home.
