Janus Residence: 1930 Brick Tudor Transformed in a House with Two Faces

Janus Residence is a family home renovated and modernized by Seattle-based Workshop AD. This project transforms a 1930 brick Tudor into a house with two faces. The traditional, street facing façade remains untouched, concealing the dramatic change to the interior and rear façade. Given the clients goals for cleanly detailed spaces oriented to the northern view of the Ship Canal, the rear façade of the existing house was blown open and replaced with an aperture that spans the entire width of the structure. This new façade responds to the reorganized living spaces that create a new bedroom, open living, and family sized entry space all within the footprint of the existing modest home.
