Building Notes

The American Institute of Architects (AIA), Seattle Chapter, bestowed a 2009 Honor Award on the Flip Flop House. The AIA Seattle web site described it as follows: "The project departs from the Seattle norm of a single-family dwelling centered on its lot and surrounded by an ill-defined and underused ring of outdoor space by providing two complete “flip-flopped” dwellings defining their own outdoor spaces. The design responds to its corner site with diagonally opposing entrances, gardens, parking and corner windows to provide the amenities of single-family living for two households, not one, on an in-city lot using existing public utility and transportation infrastructure." (See "AIA Seattle 2009 Honor Awards for Washington Architecture,"accessed 10/07/2011.)

The Flip Flop House was also featured on the AIA Seattle's Explore Design Home Tour, 09/2013.
