A Mediterranean style hillside home in Seattle is the ultimate bachelor pad


This Mediterranean-style hillside home was designed by architectural studio Hoedemaker Pfeiffer, located in Washington Park, a neighborhood in east central Seattle, Washington. The owner, a powerhouse bachelor, commissioned the architects to help transform his home into a warm and inviting space.

The dwelling was originally designed by Stuart Silk Architects in the late ’90s and was in need of a major overhaul. The project team set out to create a sophisticated but effortlessly comfortable oasis. Just about every surface of every room both indoors and out was reimagined.

Interesting Fact: The chandelier in the entry was salvaged from the original Fairmont hotel and was already existing in the home!

A singular warm white cloaks the home with new finishes in bronze, steel, limestone, and pale oak. All are integral to this newly clad enduring sense of place. The aesthetic goal for the home was a relaxed luxury and continuity of strong sculptural form.


What We Love: This Mediterranean-style hillside home was completely reimagined to have a more timeless appeal. The home’s views help to inspire the design’s soothing palette and overall relaxing feel. Overall, living spaces have a sophisticated yet comfortable feel. They are inviting enough for everyday living, working, and entertaining family and friends. The ultimate bachelor pad that provides luxury and comfort.

Craftsmanship was of the utmost importance. The resulting home has a refined sense of quiet comfort, interlaced heirloom pieces, and an art collection that will undoubtedly age as gracefully.​
