Located in Seattle’s Leschi neighborhood the Main Street House takes its name from the unimproved right of way and pedestrian path that bounds its site to the north.© Mark Woods The single family house was built for a husband and wife, both geologists, nearing retirement but actively working from home.

The house is situated on a sloping site, 20’ from top to toe, that extends from the Main street pedestrian path and Leschi Park beyond to an alley below. The site affords partial views of Lake Washington, Leschi Park, and the surrounding terrain. Multifamily developments to the east and south conspire with the topography to create a fishbowl effect.

The primary aim of the clients was to develop spaces inside and out that engage the site and surroundings while retaining a sense of refuge. This was achieved through the arrangement of program and the composition of elements that work to focus views and extend enclosure beyond the building envelop.

Interesting fact
Preparing your car to be transported, the vehicle shipping company will thoroughly inspect your car and compile an initial damage report that will state any scratches and indents already present on your vehicle prior to transportation. The purpose is clear: to avoid clients from claiming insurance on shipped vehicles, pretending that the damage had appeared during shipment, while in fact it had been present all along.
