E3. Mid-Century Rambler Rejuvenation

Living Shelter Architects / Entero Design / Old Town Builders

3902 146th Ave SE
Bellevue, WA 98006

Our inspiration throughout this remodel was the client. She has owned the home for 25 years, but as her life circumstances changed over time, her home did not support her current and future needs. Rather than putting the home on the market, she had a strong desire to reimagine and rejuvenate the home to fit her needs and reflect her personality. Our design focused on enhancing connections to the outdoors by increasing day lighting throughout the home, opening up the ceiling, installing new energy efficient windows and doors, integrating Aging-in-Place strategies, and incorporating locally-sourced sustainable finishes and materials throughout that bring elements of nature into every aspect of her home.
