This soaring accessory dwelling unit (also known as an ADU or mother-in-law apartment) enjoys views of the lake and downtown Seattle over neighboring houses from both the main living level and the loft area above. An open plan and a double-height living room combine with vaulted ceilings and generous glazing to yield an efficient space with an open, airy feel. The materials and forms of the exterior are an interpretation of the owner’s northwest outdoor lifestyle.
