A view of the three-story DFAB House perched atop the NEST Building.
Consisting of three prefabricated units in West Seattle on a 5,000 square-foot lot, the Genesee Townhomes—by Method Homes and Chris Pardo Design—from 1,250-1,400 square feet, each with three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms.
A dramatic cantilevered roof extends over the lower building volume, tying together the separate, yet connected, blocks of the home.
An interior courtyard is covered by trellised shading above, filtering light into the living spaces.
Wood screens provide privacy to the lower level, while allowing for ventilation in this hot, humid climate.
The house also comes with a dock.

Lanefab Design/Build demolished the existing carport and replaced it with a new addition that included the new entry, dining room, family room, mud room, and garage.
The hillside home includes multiple outdoor living spaces, including a wraparound deck, landscaped grounds, and a two-car garage/workspace.
The post-and-beam construction has a dramatic carport entrance which showcases the home's clean, midcentury lines.
The board-formed concrete, steel, and teak over a rainscreen system blend the building into the site.
Surrounded by rugged beauty, the home was designed with a faceted exterior optimized for wraparound views unique in each room.
Located in Western Idaho, the Cliff House faces views of Payette Lake toward the south and west, while vast granite and dense forest flank the property to the north and east.
The C6 is one of LivingHomes' most popular models. Coming in at 1,232 square feet, this LivingHome offers a comfortable living space for a relatively low cost.

Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) was installed for the flat roofs.
Vertical cast-in-place concrete walls break up the building's horizontal forms.
Set between massive oak trees, the home was sensitively placed to minimize site impact.
"The roof of the lower level becomes the terrace of the upper level, with unobstructed views to the south," says principal architect Robert Swatt.

The thin roof extends over the east side of the entry hall, while a series of skylights allow natural light to pass through. The entrance is on the west side of the glazed entrance.
The steel-framed glazed living pavilion is partly clad in wood and sits atop CMU walls.
"The east façade reveals these distinct parts of the house—the grounded bedroom volume to the north, the glass hallway, which offers a glimpse to otherwise secluded outdoor spaces, and the living pavilion that is lifted above the site to view the forest and pond," the team adds.
The "living pavilion" on the southern wing is elevated to make the space level with the home.
The private bedroom and service rooms are located at the northern street corner and are clad in concrete masonry units.
The back deck provides the perfect spot for entertaining and enjoying the lush landscape.
The rich material palette of stone, timber, glass, and board-formed concrete blend the home into the surroundings.
A glazed staircase placed on the south side of the building next to the hillside leads to the bedrooms on the upper level.
The house was strategically placed between the lake and an adjacent granite rock-face to capture key landscape views.
The property in Gooderham is set at the end of the original lake access road, and enjoys 1,300 feet of uninterrupted lakeside shoreline.
The original roof was flat with a flush parapet. In the early 90s, the former owners had a low-pitched roof placed on top of the existing roof, as well as new corrugated siding to cover the parapets. During the renovation, the interim roof was removed, and a new minimum-slope roofing structure was erected on the existing beams—reinstating the roof section toward the original design. The parapet is now clad with copper paneling.
The project encompassed exterior renovations and retrofitting, as well as four small additions to the building, and the construction of a new roof and landscaping.
When the current homeowners acquired the property from its original owners, the house had been well-maintained and was in good condition. The dwelling was even equipped with an HVAC system, a rare innovation for the period and building type.
The central, rectangular, concrete structure features expansive glazing which showcases the stunning scenery from every angle.

The clients were active participants in the conversation about how to mitigate challenges like street traffic noise (the house is set right on a major thoroughfare) and how to relieve some of the visual pressure of the openness of the front facade. The garage is located below the envelope of the height and coverage-restricted house which results in the floor and driveway level with the street, a critical detail in snow country.
In contrast to the intensity of the front facade is a wood-skin section of the house on the rear facade, containing sleeping areas that cantilever over the outdoor bar and dining area.
The house is anchored to its sloping site through a series of steps that lead from street-level to front entrance, and through the identification of the garage as a central element of the architecture.
