A key element to mid-century modern design is the ability to marry indoor spaces to the outside. David Coleman Architecture used that key principal when designing the Broadmoor House. First built in 1956, the original dwelling featured a one-story structure situated on a half-acre in Seattle, Washington. While the existing structure made an attempt to connect with the landscape, the new additions and renovations sought to deepen that relationship. The home's new footprint wraps its internal living spaces around an exterior courtyard. Fitted with oversized lift-slide doors and expansive windows, the glazing affords views of the rear meadow while seamlessly expanding the internal rooms out to the pastoral setting. On the far side of the home, a master suite has its own access to the meadow and its bathroom's freestanding tub opens out to a private courtyard.
