Art Imitates Life

Home Design

Seattle’s Gallery House is our Home of the Week! This cozy, in-town retreat connects with the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountain views and highlights the client’s wonderful collection of Northwest art.

GalleryHouse_10_W FacadeA light-filled vertical gallery provides separation between public and private areas, while creating numerous places to encounter art in unexpected ways. The centerpiece is a translucent glass and steel stair that glows from below and channels natural light from above.

The bedrooms are buffered from more public areas by alcoves for displaying art. To the west, the living and dining rooms open to an expansive terrace that has views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. To the east is a screened outdoor sitting area that provides shade and privacy when desired.
