Karen & Dave's Accessible Renovation

Name: Karen Braitmayer & Dave Erskine (Architect and Marine Mechanic)
Location: Magnolia — Seattle, Washington
Size: 1,800 square feet
Years lived in: 15 — owned since 1996

Working alongside Röm Architecture Studio, fellow architect Karen Braitmayer's goal was to make her family's Seattle home functional, user-friendly, and comfortable — while accommodating daily accessibility needs for two wheelchair users. The home's 1954 MCM roots evolved into a home of today — lived-in with very specific personal requirements, desires and tastes. The renovation's result: an open-air stunner!
