The bold red of of this arts-and-crafts home is an exclamation point to the neighborhood. Meticulous detailing with natural materials, such as the exposed beam porch and stone wall and pillars, make this a shining example of the style.

Rich polished wood creates a warm frame for this inviting balcony. Wicker armchairs are topped with plush red tufted cushions creating a nice color contrast to the forrest green siding. A matching wicker table with glass top separates the chair for a simple and intimate set up.
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.
