University District- New Shed Style Modern Home 


Project Overview

A sub-style of Contemporary-Modern design, Shed homes were particular favorites of architects in the 1960s and 1970s. They feature multiple single-plane roofs, often sloping in different directions, creating unique geometric shapes. Wood shingles or vertical board siding typically covers the exterior, and front doorways are recessed and downplayed. Large windows are arranged for views to the outside.

New Construction offers some unique opportunities. This was a high end spec home that quickly became a custom home. We came onto this project a little later than we would have liked but we jumped in and helped our clients make some big decisions. They were very overwhelmed and suffering from major decision fatigue. 


Once we got started they were surprised how easy the process was. We assisted with finalizing the cabinet details and design and all surface materials including flooring & tile details, lighting, plumbing and color selections. We assisted with the ceiling details and worked with the client and builder on the perfect shade for the wood posts and beams in the dining room.

Architectural details make all the difference. 

We  provided conceptual furniture plans, assisted in the furnishings selections,  We spent a day shopping for furniture and helped with all the finishing touches including wall paper, artwork & accessories. This  wine room is one of our favorites spaces.
