This mid-century modern makeover in Laurelhurst was recently featured on a “Houzz Tour.”
The extensive and colorful remodel of this mid-century modern house in Seattle’s Laurelhurst was a collaboration between Robin Chell Design and Coop15 architects.
“Our goal was not to re-create or preserve a midcentury-period piece, but rather to build upon the best of those elements, while creating a home setting that is completely fresh and relevant to contemporary living,” says Robin Chell. Read the entire article on HOUZZ online magazine.

Ballard mixed-use project will set new standard for sustainable development in Seattle.
Construction is underway on a very unique new urban development in Ballard. Robin Chell Design is thrilled to be part of the team. We are providing comprehensive interior design services for this mixed-use project, which includes apartments, offices and retail. The Greenfire Campus, located right next to the new Ballard library, will include plenty of open space, including rain gardens, riparian habitat and p-patches for residents to grow food.
Designed by Johnston Architects, Greenfire campus incorporates a very modern aesthetic, and it will have unique exterior features such as a water cistern, expansive rooftop terraces and solar panels. Sustainable interior design elements will include unique materials such as Environite, a solid surface countertop made of recycled glass and resin, which is manufactured on Camano Island. Flooring materials will include Bolon, a Scandinavian plant-based flooring product, which achieved the highest rating for flooring durability and water resistance.
Completion is slated for Spring 2013.
