Overlooking Lake Washington, this 1931 Tudor home featured warm materials and several original details, but suffered from a cramped layout and an inadequate connection to its park-like lot overlooking Lake Washington. The young family who bought the house commissioned DeForest Architects to reimagine the interior layout of the home while maintaining the essential character of the house on the outside.

The resulting remodel, for which Ore Studios selected all of the finishes and fixtures, reorganized the first floor of the house. The kitchen was flipped to the garden side of the property and now opens to the yard. Exposed steel structural members help create larger rooms, and this material language informed the selection of supporting finishes.

The furnishing and decoration of the house was undertaken at the same time, and reflects a more contemporary point of view. Clean silhouettes and expert tailoring ensure modern pieces feel appropriate within the more traditional Tudor envelope.
