The project is a house located on a beautiful site overlooking Washington State Capitol. The conventional arrangement of residential spaces is deliberately reversed. Social spaces - kitchen, dining, living, deck - are located in the upper floor to enjoy views of Capitol Lake, the Washington State Capitol, and in the distance, Mount Rainier. An open attic space works as an art studio, and the lower level contains the sleeping quarters. A secondary volume contains a three-car garage and a rental apartment.
