The Japanese Nichiha exterior siding provides a contemporary feel with low maintenance. The existing 1950s home has been transformed into a modern showstopper!
This ‘70s house with great bones missed the mark with a choppy layout and by obscuring a fantastic view. We opened the floorplan and the entire back wall to the water view. Between the 21-foot sliding door and a sleek combination of wood and painted cabinets, there’s no way to miss the intention. It is now a space that is both calm and vibrant, ready to accommodate a party for 40 or a quiet fireside dinner for two.
A mid-century split-level home is often viewed as a building lot. In this case, it was seen as a framework and as potential. A largely cosmetic renovation gave this Mercer Island home a new identity, greater functionality and a bit of wow factor!

The latest in technology is part of the equation in the form of appliances, specialty lighting and even plumbing fixtures.

Like most kitchens built in 1968, this one was closed off, making it a prime candidate for remodeling. Focusing on a brighter, better ventilated kitchen, the dream of taking down the wall between the kitchen and adjacent rooms allowed the homeowners to add an island and cozy eating area, creating a more functional space. Dark wood flooring, new cabinets, countertops, range, and modern sink with glass tile backsplash completed the transformation.
We expanded the kitchen into a previously enclosed porch and relocated the exterior door. We replaced a door opening with a pass-through "window" between the dining room and kitchen to keep the two rooms connected and maximize wall space. Outside, we removed vinyl siding and restored the original wood siding and trim. We also replaced all of the windows, front porch (including stairs and railing), garage door, roofing and added new paint.
