The East Market House was designed by COOP15 and is located in Kirkland’s East of Market neighborhood, in Seattle. The residence is adapted to the urban character of this part of town and displays a highly modern design. According to the architects, “living spaces are tightly organized and vertical, stacked over the garage, with a shifting geometry between floors creating a more dynamic form and living spaces. That shifting language continues with the built-in cabinetry in the kitchen and at the large central stair and wall. The stair wall, along with a simple singular accent color, ties the three stories together, creating a datum around which other programmatic elements align. Materials are tough and weatherproof, with limited use of natural wood accents. A green roof sits atop a main floor bedroom drawing the landscape up into the stacked forms of the architecture“.
