Building Notes

Seattle Architect Joseph S. Coté (1874-1957) designed a number of residences for upper-middle-class clients near Volunteer Park in the Capitol Hill Neighborhood of Seattle, WA. It was a two-story, Dutch Colonial residence with a gambrel roof and shed dormers on the front facade. Cote placed the main entry centrally, projecting it slightly to create a small foyer. Within this cramped foyer was the main stairway which Cote emphasized with glazing on the main facade. On either side of the central entry was a living room and a bedroom on one side, and a dining room, covered porch and kitchen on the other. Directly behind the entry/stair hall, was unidentified space, presumably used for storage. The one bedroom on the first floor had its own full bath.
