In this two-story addition, the Clarks did not simply get more space – the very feel of their home was revolutionized. Through the remodel process, what had been a fine living area before was transformed into an exceptionally open and bright space for welcoming guests and thriving as a family. The deftly designed addition emphasizes a large back deck, which the family has said feels and acts like an extension of the interior space. The new elevated paver deck overlooks Downtown Seattle and the Cascade mountain range across Elliott Bay. Significant structural work allowed the family room to expand, a dining room to be created, and the basement den to grow to a full-fledged Seahawk haven.
