Hawthorne Hills Upper Level Remodel

This transitional style family residence was thoughtfully designed by Patricia Brennan Architects for a dual-career professional couple and their children. The partial upper level addition has a renovated master suite and reveals million dollar views of Lake Washington and Mt Rainier. The updated master bath includes a new slipper tub, radiant heated floors, a separate shower with glass and European tiles throughout.

The elementary school-aged twins now have a new light-filled family bath with a mix of European and glass tile in the walk-in shower, dual sinks set in a quarter-sawn walnut vanity cabinet, and radiant heated floors. This addition offers yet another benefit, a new inviting nook on the main landing with custom built-ins for books and games as well as new architectural woodwork at the stair guard railing.

Construction challenges: Difficult site access and creating a seamless second story addition that feels like it was original to the seven-decades old home.
