Stein residence

This growing family needed more room than was available in their aging Seattle classic house. They loved their neighborhood and their house, so they decided to add a third floor to their home for their children's rooms. The challenge was to remain faithful to the style of the house and neighborhood.

Features of the remodel include a small porch off the master bedroom, directly over the new entry porch and third floor bay cantilevers in order to create additional living space. The third floor structural system avoided having to disrupt the existing floor levels below. The challenge was to add a new top floor level to the house while remaining faithful not only to the character but also the scale of the neighborhood.

The new top floor features sloped ceilings, exposed wood beams, and traditional wood windows that look out onto Queen Anne and beyond. The new stairway to the top floor is crowned with a stepped, glassed-in enclosure. The old style leaded glass was salvaged from a previously demolished Queen Anne home.
