Consisting of three prefabricated units in West Seattle on a 5,000 square-foot lot, the units range from 1,250-1,400 square feet, each with three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. The generous glazing of the living rooms are set back from the exterior cedar rainscreen, and the rest of the facade is sheathed in metal panels. The ground floor was built onsite, but the upper two floors were prefabricated offsite in a factory.

Cor-Ten steel acts as the primary exterior material.  Subtle design features in the steel paneling of the guest wing create notable results; every other panel is slightly offset to create visual and unexpected interest.
The driveway entrance introduces the stately side of the home, displaying clean lines made of concrete and Cor-Ten steel.  Almost every material implemented in this home was done so to create a maintenance-free space that withstands the weather and betters with age.  The design required minimal alteration of the site, a notable accomplishment in land preservation.  To maintain the natural grade, the structure is elevated and cantilevered at the slope, held up by columns which needed only a small amount of foundation work.  The only major land disturbance occurs in the recessed garage, which has been supplemented with a green roof on top to preserve the meadow.

“The sun rises behind the house and heats up the concrete mass during the morning, and [comes] through the front of the house in the afternoon; if need be the radiant energy warms up the house when temperatures drop in the evening,” says Thorsteinsson. Thanks to the thoughtful process, the couple was able to leave out the air-conditioning, and the house’s under-floor radiant heating system has turned out to be almost superfluous.
"We created a bosque of ironwood (Olneya tesota), one of our most cherished indigenous tree species,” Debra explains.
