Rom Architecture & Karen Braitmayer | Mid-Century Modern | Seattle, WA

Eichler-style meets accessibility in this 1950’s era home on top of Magnolia hill in Seattle. Everyone who visits this mid-century home comments about how it is “modern… but a kind of modern you can actually LIVE in.” Cheery and comfortable, this right-sized home with an expansive view is designed to be user-friendly for wheelchairs and sneakers alike.
Carol Sundstrom, AIA, of Röm Architecture Studio and Karen Braitmayer, FAIA, worked together to transform Karen’s own home for her family while developing solutions to design challenges that they could also use on future residential projects.
This project was awarded the 2011 AIA/HUD Secretary’s Alan J. Rothman Award in Housing Accessibility which recognizes the “importance of good housing as a necessity of life, a sanctuary for the human spirit, and a valuable national resource.”
