An existing low-slung ranch style house on the southeast slope of the Magnolia neighborhood in Seattle was thoroughly renovated - without changing the footprint. The main form of the house was kept, but modified to enhance interior spaces. The pre-existing low ceilings felt oppressive, so cathedral-type ceilings were achieved by cutting into the attic. Boxes of powder-coated blue steel expand the kitchen and bathrooms, and give exterior harmony to what was a previously very random window pattern. On the East side, an original curved window was replaced with another steel box; gaining space, natural light, and views to Puget Sound.
