Woodway Guest

Modern within Traditional

This 1400 square foot guest house emulates the main house that was designed by Tyler 16 years prior. Modern in its split-level floor plan, wrap around windows and glass enclosed stair; it is also traditional in its details and materials which reflect this historic “shingle-style” vernacular.

The split-level section parallels the sloping terrain, efficiently providing more space within the prescribed height limit, while its iconic gable-end façade with anthropomorphic windows greets visitors just as the main house does.

This project was published in the Seattle Times Pacific NW Magazine.
