West Seattle Junction House

Paul Michael Davis Architects PLLC as Architects

Located in Seattle’s lively West Seattle Junction neighborhood, Dalen Bakstad of Bakstad Construction approached Paul Michael Davis Architects to design a new, single-family contemporary house with a lower level ADU on a previously undeveloped corner lot.


Using an existing set of plans the clients had put together, the design team reorganized the plans into a simple linear 3,800 sf home. Two volumes were carved away from the west-facing front of the house. One of these served as a covered entry, and the other as a large volume adding sculptural depth to the facade.


These two carved away areas were treated as softer spaces in between inside and outside. As such, they will have a more precious siding such as redwood, which will be sheltered from the weather, and provide a contrast with the “hard” gray shell.
