Quote of the Month
"Like a tapestry life is woven of many experiences."
Spotlight: The Baldwin House
"An urban response to the suburban ranch-style house" is how owner, Architect Emory Baldwin
describes the home he designed to
promote aging-in-place. Located in an “urban infill” project in
the Green Lake neighborhood of Seattle, Washington, it is a
three-story house including the finished basement. Both the main
floor and the finished basement (which is designed as a
mother-in-law apartment) are accessible. The Baldwin House
demonstrates the principles of Universal Design, lifespan design and
flexibility that allows for the changing needs of people over
time. Emory was able to implement these principles both economically
and aesthetically and in a manner that a typical contractor could
build this kind of house.
