ProjectsBothell Outdoor Living Space
This is an early project I did in collaboration with Terry Phelan when I worked for her at Living Shelter Design Architects. The goals were to enhance the connection between the house and yard, create more opportunities for outdoor living, to provide a place for guests to stay and a new workshop for projects.
We rebuilt an improved back porch and wrapped it around to the south side of the house. The south porch is sized to protect the living space from summer sun while allowing warm rays through in the winter.
The new porch has activity spaces for dining, grilling, sitting around a fire or enjoying a morning coffee on the south side.
