Midcentury penthouse apartment rehab boasts insane views over Seattle

contemporary-deck

Originally constructed in 1955, this midcentury penthouse apartment has been completely reimagined by SkB Architects, located in Seattle, Washington. Encompassing 1,590 square feet of living space, the original layout typified the small, separated living spaces of its era.

The architects were presented with a design challenge: to create a home that reflects contemporary taste along with the owner’s desire for an atmosphere that is rich in materials and textures.

There were three major details defining this condo update: break down the existing barriers between living spaces; accentuate the connection to the adjoining 850 square foot terrace; create an overarching visual harmony for the dwelling by employing simple, elegant materials.

The remodel preserves and enhances this dwelling’s mid-century roots while bringing the design into the 21st century—appropriate given the apartment’s proximity to the fairgrounds of the 1962 World’s Fair.
