HOUGHTON HOUSE

HOUGHTON HOUSE

Kirkland, WA| 1980-2012

The Architect’s house, originally a builder house constructed in 1958 as a basic box, has had three major additions and renovations and numerous smaller ones  to create a beautiful living space. Our goals: maximize daylight, create a strong indoor-outdoor connection, increase usable outdoor deck area, open house up and develop a passive summer cooling system appropriate for the climate, maximize view, minimize roadway sound, extend the life of the house, provide landscaping for the house to age with, and turn the house into something unique and livable.
