When a neglected 1961 George Lucker home was in need of repair, SHED Architecture & Design stepped in to redesign the residence for an intergenerational family. Perched on a Seattle hillside overlooking Lake Washington, the mid-century home is ideal for families craving the natural setting, an open floor plan and a new master suite.
Maintaining the home’s original footprint, the company focused on reconfiguring the interior to create interconnected spaces that benefit from natural light. The kitchen has been moved to one end to create one large open space for the living room, dining room and kitchen. The spaces flow together seamlessly and harmoniously, the dining area is very small and not overly defined – there is only a table and chairs opposite the deck entrance. A sunroom was removed and replaced with a deck overlooking the lake and mountains.
The foyer has been opened up to allow a view of the aft deck from the front door whilst offering less storage space and open shelving. A pane of glass was installed in the entryway to allow natural light into the lower level of the house and the landing.
The original ceiling beams have been restored to create dramatic high ceilings and a warm color palette. Vertical corn fir, plastic laminate and red oak floors were incorporated to blend in with the original Lucker design. An existing skylight is retained in the master bathroom to fill the space with natural light. Get more pictures of this beautiful renovation below!
