This 1959 midcentury ranch-style house was completely remodeled by SHED Architecture & Design, located in the Madison Park neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. After seeing a lifetime of remodeling, this dwelling finally saw a much-needed revitalization that would respect its past while making it suitable for contemporary living.

The main goal was to transform the existing volume while creating a more integrated result that bridges the past with the future.

What We Love: This midcentury ranch-style house features a bright and airy new floor plan that provides a fluid flow between living spaces. Walls of windows punctuate the facade to create a brilliant indoor-outdoor connection while flooding the living spaces with natural light. The finished result of this renovation project is a timeless and durable aesthetic that will be enjoyed by this home’s inhabitants for years to come.

Large sliding doors open up the new kitchen to an expansive deck offering views of natural plantings and a lower fire pit patio. These outdoor living spaces carefully extend their way through the yard among mature trees and are further established by concrete walls to provide necessary structure and privacy.

Exposed aggregate concrete pavers provide the walking surfaces through the yardscape. These paths and steps gently engage with the new natural landscaping, gradually connecting the home to a series of private outdoor spaces around the property.
