Wallingford Duplex Remodel

This 1906 home in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle had previously been converted into a duplex with a living unit on each level. We were tasked with turning it back into a more functional single-family residence, while retaining much of the existing character on the exterior. Phase one included opening up the main level and removing a dropped ceiling to create a spacious great room and semi-private den that could also double as a guest bedroom. During phase two, the upper level will be expanded to fill the entire footprint, creating three bedrooms and two full baths. In addition to the second story build-out, the exterior will also receive new windows, entry awning, paint and landscaping. Working with the homeowners, we came up with a design solution that took a gallery approach – to create a simple and elegant space that allows for the furnishings and finishes to become the focal point. This project also had a modest budget, with the homeowners taking on some of the work and sourcing materials, products and furnishings themselves.

Phase one was recently completed by Cobalt Construction and we look forward to sharing more updates in the future!
