Best urban living space: Triple play

Project: Colman Triplex, Seattle

What we love: That the architects designed a complex yet elegant system to fit three apartments, each with generous outdoor living space and views, within just 3,800 square feet.

The use of a structural steel frame allowed for more flexible floor plans: Someday, for instance, units A and C could be combined to make an apartment large enough to house a home office, an aging parent, or a growing family.

Design:  Workshop Architecture + Design, Seattle (206/903-5414)
