A contemporary pavilion rises from a 50-year-old footprint

The front entrance of this North Seattle remodel gives only a hint of the dated rambler that preceded it. The taller portion is the new, light-filled living room.

Remodeled into an open floor plan, the kitchen is no longer hidden away. The French doors lead to a secluded rear patio that greatly extends the home's warm-weather living spaces.
Architect: David Foster of David Foster Architects

Builder: FTW Construction

Construction cost/size: $330,000/2,116 square feet

The intent: "This was one of your typical ranch houses — low ceilings, low eaves, pretty uninteresting," Foster says of the original 50-year-old North Seattle rambler he turned into a contemporary pavilion, replete with heated concrete floors and a fireplace faced with steel. The existing footprint remained, and the living room and master bedroom stayed where they were, but everything else changed. Now the living room has a 12-foot ceiling, the kitchen opens to a dining and a family room, and a covered rear patio orients entertaining outdoors.
