2006 Best Residential Remodel

The clients saw the potential of this worn out post and beam house on a dramatic steep site. The home is on a steep hillside, so the front entrance is on the third floor, with one level above and two below. The rear four stories are all glass walls that have extraordinary views. The house suffered from major traffic flow issues involving the foyer and main stair. By relocating the stair to the end wall of the great room, the foyer was opened to the view, and the stair became a design opportunity. A custom designed maple and mahogany stair serves as a sculptural element on what was a blank wall. A floor to ceiling glass panel was added at the bottom of the stairs to take advantage of hidden views of the river. A spiral staircase was added to the solarium to provide public circulation from the living room above without needing to pass through the master bedroom below.
