This is a single family residential addition designed while working for office G|O in Tacoma, Washington. The client had one child with a second on the way and was looking to expand their living options. The area alloted for the addition was above the garage facing the cul-de-sac and the development covenants required the addition match the existing home. The stairs provide an access corridor to the existing bedrooms and the living room, allowing for a direct visual connection for both the parents and the children. Not shown in this image is the renovation of the laundry niche (just beyond the end of the stairs) into a study station for the children.
