They added a kitchen wing to their 80-year-old home.
Thoughtful details enrich the kitchen wing added to the rear of this Seattle house. Formerly, the kitchen was a narrow galley with no room to expand because of the side setback. Instead, the owners opted for a one-story wing jutting into the back garden. The new wing includes an up-to-date kitchen and a breakfast area, with plenty of room provided for friends and family to gather while food is being prepared. The old kitchen now serves as a utility and laundry area. Designed by Bumgardner Architects, the 25-foot-long wing has accents that help it blend with the 80-year-old house. Throughout the space, layers of wood with subtle shadow patterns add quiet detail. Exposed rafters over the kitchen are spaced 24 inches on center.
