VAVA House, Seattle, WA

The design of the VAVA House emphasizes the creative ways families share space and help each other grow, learn, and play. Located in Seattle, Washington, the clients asked Fivedot to design a house that reinforced a connection to their neighbors and their new community.

In response, the design team flipped the typical arrangement of a suburban house which normally is closed off in the front and more open to the rear. In contrast, the 3,643-square-foot home is designed to open onto an expansive front patio with multiple gathering areas which then cascades down to a small park across the street. A custom charpai (swing) anchors the covered front porch which also contains a firepit and a heater making it a true four-season space.

Programmatically, the VAVA House has a total of four bedrooms – one main bedroom, two kids’ bedrooms with built in beds/closets and a guest bedroom – three bathrooms, an open living/dining/kitchen room, a gym, upstairs lounge, office, and tinkering room.

The house also has a green roof, extensive solar panels, and utilizes previous concrete to reduce any runoff. Some additional fun design details include:
