Folded Plane House in Seattle

What is known as Folded Plane Housewas first constructed in the 1960s. The original design of the property allowed the north and south exterior walls to fold up and over the roof, covering all with shingles.

The folded planes of the vaulted ceiling and cedar-clad walls were evident within the structure, a highlight of main floor living spaces. North and south walls are largely without openings; east and west elevations are m costly glass.

These themes were strengthened in the renovation, which extended the west end of the house, expanding total floor area to 2200 square feet. Fiberglass shingles cover the exterior walls and roof.

Cedar cladding is preserved on the interior face of those walls, while other interior dividing walls are now gypsum wall board, to brighten the interior on cloudy days.
