Architect Visit: Sky Ranch by Miller Hull in Seattle

Meredith Swinehart April 25, 2011

In a city like Seattle, with active working waterways, much of the best waterfront property is occupied by warehouses and other industrial buildings. We like this waterview-capturing loft designed by Seattle-based architects Miller Hull Partnership: Called Sky Ranch, the 800-square-foot residence in the Ballard neighborhood is perched atop a warehouse (it earned an Honorable Mention in the Small Space category of the 2010 Sunset-AIA Western Home Awards). See more of the firm's work at Miller Hull.

Above: A wood-plank walkway leads to the entrance; galvanized planters add an industrial note.

Above: The residence is surrounded by a wood deck and plantings, creating a rooftop oasis.

Above: Oversized glass windows and sliding doors capture the view over the ship canal.

Above: The kitchen features nautical-like built-in storage.

Above: Bookshelves line an entire wall.

Above: A wall with a fireplace divides the living space from the bedroom without compromising views.

Above: The wood deck has a boathouse-like feel.
