In fir and glass, modern melds with tradition

In updating an old brick house, the architect drew inspiration from tree houses for this modern glass-and-wood addition.
Architect: Brian McWatters of Alchemy Design Lab

Builders: McWatters and owner Tod Nelson

Construction cost/size: $335,000/2,745 square feet

The intent: Owner Tod Nelson loves his 1905 brick home, nestled in Seattle's Denny Blaine neighborhood. He also loves modern design. The two were melded in a rear addition to the existing home that also rectified prior earthquake damage and structural decay. The new space gives Nelson a 745-square-foot living room, a new office suite and a remodeled and enlarged kitchen. The addition's stylistic motifs include exposed-fir columns and beams, and 11-foot window walls with more than 30 window sizes.
