Chic midcentury modern renovation surrounded by woods in Seattle

midcentury-exterior

This midcentury modern home was designed by New-Jersey based Mowery Marsh Architects, nestled on a sprawling 10,000 square foot wooded property in Washington. The home was originally constructed in 1957 by Seattle–based architect Hawley Adelbert Dudley, used as his personal residence. During the same year this home was built, Seattle Times awarded it “Home of the Month” in September.

Structurally the home was in great condition, yet the interior was very closed off and lacked visual connection with its beautiful surroundings. The homeowners requested a complete overhaul, beginning with the exterior facade, which now features updated siding and brand new windows—creating a unified aesthetic. Continue below to see the results of this stunning renovation.

Project Team: Architect: Mowery Marsh Architects / Builder: Mark Patterson Construction / Structural Engineer: Dibble Engineers / Interior Design: Kaylen Flugel Design

The upper level mezzanine was once closed off, but the renovation involved tearing down walls to illuminate the space with natural light and further connecting it to the outdoors. This space features soaring ceilings with warm wood ceiling boards and polished concrete floors—with radiant heat. In the kitchen, concrete countertops, a Carrara marble backsplash and deep black stained cabinetry.

What We Love: This midcentury modern renovation project features clean lines and a light and airy palette that is simply spectacular. The double volume, open concept great room is fabulous, we are loving the black and white palette in the kitchen. But our favorite space in this house has to be the rooftop deck! What a fantastic spot to relax while enjoying amazing views of this peaceful setting.

This home is absolutely stunning. I have a MCM I’m in the process of renovating in WA state as well. Would you mind sharing the type of track lighting used throughout the home on the dark support beams? I’m hoping to improve lighting with something similar for our cardeck ceiling. Also, lovely paint color if you don’t mind sharing as well? Thank you so much!
