A remodel of Seattle impressionist artist Louise Crow’s former studio into a compact urban home for a member of Seattle’s first family of phở.

Since the sale of the art studio in the 1940s, the building has seen a variety of uses, ranging from religious to residential. Located on a 2,835 sf lot sandwiched between two large houses in Seattle’s Leschi neighborhood, the renovation and addition will transform the single-level 1,000 sf structure into a two-level, 1,858 sf home organized around double-height spaces that open to the street, yard, and sky. Pink elements are incorporated throughout the home, inspired by an existing street-facing window that is being repurposed as a guardrail and screen for the interior stairs.

Construction is set to be completed in Spring 2024. Stay tuned!
