The Glade was built in 2006-2007 on three parcels of land on the east side of Magnolia, in Seattle.
The site has views of Salmon Bay and Downtown Seattle and we sought to introduce a natural landscape as the focus of three new houses. Nineteen thousand square feet of gardens, rocks, rills and pools provide a setting for spaces that open to decks and courtyards.
Three houses include a lower-level accessible apartment with a dedicated kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. All levels center on glass atria with views of the site landscaping and courtyards. The houses face west to entry bridges spanning the streams and pools below and east to covered decks and Seattle views. The Glade uses natural and sustainable materials and finishes to complement Northwest contemporary forms and textures.
The Glade was developed, designed, and built by Tim Rhodes RA. AIA.
