Capitol Hill Mansion Updated By Tom Kundig

Check it out, Mansion built by Rainier Brewery founder gets a contemporary touch:

THE MANSION is historic, the owners are young and techie, and the architect is one of the most sought-after in the world at the moment. Just think about what could have happened.

Instead, Gay Gilmore, Troy Hakala and architect Tom Kundig melded new and old, kid-friendly and classic, into a family home that looks as stately as it has since Rainier Brewery founder Andrew Hemrich built it in 1908.

    This is just about perfect – kitchen and office space are beautiful. Don’t love all the dark wood, but it’s period appropriate.

    These people live up the block from me. Serious attention whores. Too funny they are boasting in the Times. They should be in Medina not Capitol Hill.
