Architecturally significant live/work loft in Fremont with ADU
Built in 2005, 3643 Albion Pl. N is a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom urban townhouse in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood. Designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, the property is architecturally significant—created by the team behind Philadelphia’s Liberty Bell Center, the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue in New York City, the Grand Teton National Park’s Discovery and Visitor Center and the headquarters of Pixar and Adobe Systems. Closer to home, the firm worked on Seattle City Hall, the Ballard and Issaquah libraries and Bill Gates’ compound in Medina.
Situated north of downtown with close proximity to the Burke-Gilman Trail and Aurora Avenue, the 2,400-square-foot home embodies notable characteristics of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson’s residential works. A celebration of the city, the home elevates simple forms and spaces arranged with bewildering complexity, hard and raw materials and textures and a variety of peekaboo urban views, according to a 2007 Seattle PI article.
From the front of the property, a street-level entrance opens into a large live/work space or bonus room with the lofted main bedroom located overhead. With space for a king-sized bed, plenty of closets and an adjacent full bathroom, the master bedroom leads up to the light-filled living room and kitchen. The cozy kitchen includes custom bamboo cabinets, stainless steel appliances and a gas range. Elsewhere on the main floor, there’s a second bedroom, full bathroom and small patio. Upstairs, the fourth floor includes room for a home office, as well as a half-bath and access to a large rooftop deck with city views.
Beyond the main home, this property consists of a separate, 1,100-square-foot ADU. Four parking spaces off the alley provide easy off-street accessibility to the home for you, your renters or your guests.
