Portage Bay House

Developed by Heliotrope Architects, this stunning loft-like house was designed for a bachelor who values privacy. It sits on the waterfront in Seattle, Washington, and is fronted by an unassuming entryway marked only by a garage and wood front door. Protective shells of zinc and aluminum on the exterior echo the maritime industrial sheds littered throughout Seattle, whilst floor-to-ceiling windows let in plenty of natural light and offer a pristine view of Portage Bay with the Cascade Mountains in the background. The waterside of the house looks onto a large patio filled with flora and fauna that opens to a quaint dock for a quick boat trip and a convenient spot to park the float plane.

SOHO APARTMENT | BY DIVE ARCHITECTS

The Architects proposal was to extend the building over an existing terrace. They placed two large sliding doors that open into cavities within the walls, this allows residents to enjoy the open air on a beautiful day. Just watch your step......
