Home Office and Reading Area Tucked Into Nooks in Deep Green Foyer
Small nooks in this foyer were transformed from dead space into a home office and reading corner. A small writing desk is sized appropriately for the corner tucked by the stairwell. Neutral colors were selected for the furnishings to work better with the walls painted in Sherwin-Williams Country Squire and the dark wood beadboard trim. The space is made more lively with colorful accessories, which are easy to swap as color and pattern styles change.
Ada's Technical Books & Cafe occuppies a remodeled home in the Capital Hill neighborhood of Seattle. The impetus for the project was to create the "book retailer of the future." Achieving this vision required an adaptive reuse design, an addition and a pioneering approach to the neighborhood bookstore. The challenge would be to convert a dilapidated single-story Craftsman into a refurbished mixed-use project. The owners were dedicated to creating a balance of history and modern sustainability, so architect Jeff Pelletier imagined the building like an aged book cover with crisp, clean pages on the inside. In order to connect the space with the street-scape, Pelletier added a raised front porch for cafe seating.
