The Villa Apartment project located near Vounteer Park in Seattle featured updates and an addition to a classic 1953 2-story mid-century modern Seattle 4-plex. The original building featured original brick siding and a mature landscape. As many of the original trees and shrubs that could be preserved were, while additional complimentary plantings helped to meet the 0.6 Green Factor requirements. Views up into and around the building were considered, as well as views from exisitng private terraces that were enlarged and improved with low wrought iron fences and flowering vines. The resulting 3rd floor addition and garden improvments respectfully enhanced the original building character in this historically important neighborhood.
This project was completed while working with The Philbin Group Landscape Architecture.
