Steep Slope Residence

Construct a house on a steep slope where the build-able footprint is limited to approximately the first 25 feet of the site. 

Working closely with the building department, a house was designed that stays within the strict tolerances required by the City.

Because the slope was so steep, the first floor could count as an underground basement. This allowed a four-story home to be built with a roof deck and a spa overlooking the city of Seattle from the home's hillside location in West Seattle.
